Dead -- Why me?

Lifeless clouds driven over unliving mountains by an invisible wind
so beautiful
like me

creative activity driven to accomplishment of wonderful, worthwhile goals 
so busy, so dead
like me

looking to my soul for life, all I find is a child, playing
he's alive
unlike me

barrenness and aimlessness take over when workaholism quits
that's life
like me

Nature wins and cares not about life
only we do
but not me
