Female and male.  Female and male.

Inside us all, whether bold or frail.


The female receives the Spiritual Light.

She knows what it takes to make life right.


The male trusts in her to know the Way.

And jumps into action without delay.


If female is weak, the Way is lost,

And male will act as if wires are crisscrossed.


If male is weak, he will not defend

What female says makes a Spiritual end.


Balance inside is what all of us need.

Female must guide us, and male must take heed.
