If you have been confronted
You have felt the clashes of
East versus the West
Or ‘Ossis’ against ‘Wessis’
As known in united Germany.
You are torn between the
Reports of the media
The emotional talks of humanists
The often hollow talks of
Playing on the emotion of fear.
But listen to Mr Gauck and
Your thinking will be guided
By a humanistic person
Who also has realistic politics
At his heart
While he is ready to listen
To his opponents
And question illogical propaganda.
In the state of Austria
Following the European idealism
A balanced society is a great harbour
For all people following tolerance.
But this means also a healthy portion
For moving toward the future.
