My Opposite

My Opposite

Where She stands tall in light, I lie low in shadow.
Where She roars in fury, I am quiet in calm.
Where She loses control to violence, I maintain self-control in pacifism.
Where She is pacified by blood and wine, I am horrified and riled by both.
Where She stalks the endless desert, I pace the wooded mountains.
Where She is fearless and feared, I am cautious and unthreatening.
Where She is blinding and burning, I am dark and cool.
Where She is a god and a ruler, I am a mortal and a citizen.
Where She is an instrument of hard justice, I am a subjective mediator.
Where She is solar fire and dry wind, I am flowing water and deep earth.
Where She is fierce yet feminine, I am gentle yet masculine.

Where She is a woman with a lion’s face, I am a lion with a woman’s face.

Where She is the sun, I am the moon, reflecting Her brilliance from a different angle.
