Yin and Yang
That energetic side of us prompts us to discover
what our lazier side prefers we just keep under cover.
At different stages of our lives, one part assumes control.
That part keeps us busy, while the other takes the role
of hideaway and hermit—our protection from excesses
of “to do” lists, agendas, calendars and stresses.
So do our two selves partner up to execute a dance.
When one leads, we live safely, with the other, take a chance.
In this way we find a balance between “do” and “be,”
leaving room for “I” within the wider world of “we.”
