Opposites attract
Looking ill at ease
Their differences obvious
Like chalk and cheese

Their ability is
To look within
Their similarities
Is where they begin

Their outsides are
Merely just an overcoat
Which can be shed
Without anyone’s vote

Unaffected by the inconsistency
Of their packaging
They unite in harmony
Rising above remarks so damaging

Fearless fighters
Overcoming adversity
They protect each other
Ignoring the absurdity

Their heads held high
They partner side by side
Looking an odd pair
With noting to hide

Love is blind
But they see so clearly
The heart of each other
Given so sincerely
