When softness answers harshness
and love replaces hate

When gratitude lives there
where greed once had her home

When ‘less’ softly appears
where ‘more’ was once so strong

Then that’s in you the answer
on what you ever asked me …




‘More’ is now all around us
In shops and in ourselves
What do you think you get
With more and more and more?

What do you search in ‘more’
That never can be found?
What does ‘more’ give you now
That finally will leave you?

When ‘less’ will meet you out there
And looks at you and holds you
Then it could just be so,
That ‘more’ no longer lasts …
