yin and yang

I am yin
and I am yang
I am a woman
I’m also a man
I am dark
and I am bright
I am daytime
I am the night
I am heaven
and I am earth
I am sorrow
I am the mirth

I am water
flowing on and on
I am the fire
in each new dawn
I am the silence
never disturbed
I am the echo
forever returned
I’m every season
coming around again
I am the sun, snow,
sleet, and the rain

I follow from the front
I lead from behind
I am emotion, soul,
body and mind
I am plurality
in a singular form
I am the dao,
watch me toss and turn
I am the inside
projected upon the out
I will be what I will be,
watch me twist and shout

Based upon the Dao De Jing 1.
