More or Less

Image provided by Google Images



What do we need?
Is it very much?
Can we get by on less?
Would it cause or subtract the stress?

Less is less and less is less mess
Less is not a bad thing
Unless there is too much less
Than more, we adore the thought of more
We implore and when we get it
for maybe a moment, we are happy with more.
But the cycle repeats with more and we discard
Via yard, or on an ocean waste barge to obtain less.
And once again less becomes less stress and
More is not what we were looking for.

My sentiments exactly. I don't need any more, I need a whole lot less.
And this isn't fiction!

I have had less and I have had really less.

I'd like to try more. Just for awhile. : )

I like this one! And how much could we all do with a little less? So much to sort through, so much of why did I keep that?
