being both

You're strong
I acknowledge that
You're weak
I accept that
Your dualities are 
perplexing
My contradicting darling

Be humble
Stay as you are
Keep smiling
When tears aren't far
Your gentle spirit makes 
my heart sing
My contradicting darling

Stand tall
Set your feet
Shield up
Fear takes a back seat
Your strong convictions 
make you a king
My contradicting darling

For every day there is a 
night
For every wrong there is 
a right
Being you must be no 
easy thing
My contradicting darling
