    Different genders, yes, but not
    really opposite, we're more the same
    than we are different, in more
    ways than we can possibly name.
    We both want to be appreciated
    for whom we are inside
    Letting the glow of our inner spirits
    be our primary guide
    Both sexes like to be able to communicate
    freely, whatever we need to express
    Be it fears, secrets, hopes, tenderness,
    we shouldn't have to wonder or guess.
    Male and female want someone who
    will treat them respectfully
    Value their opinions, and not be made
    to feel a fool, or the subject of mockery
    Realize that they both have talents
    and each have an intelligent mind
    Praise the other for being so gifted
    knowledgeable and quite a wonderful find
    Both want to feel needed, even if they
    can both readily function alone
    Kings and queens reside in the same castle,
    even if they each occupy a separate throne
    But I think most of all, we just want
    to feel each other's unconditional love
    Thoroughly sharing that mutual adoration,
    cherishing God's gift of each other, sent from above
    Opposite? Not really...
    Complementary? Definitely!

    Nevar, if you take the time to read this again, you will find that I didn't say that we are all the same, I said that we are more alike than different. Either your caps key is stuck, or you are yelling. What are you yelling for? If I need to hear wisdom from an elder, I have the elders in my own family to refer to. I haven't responded to any of your poems by either yelling, or suggesting that you heed the words of one of my relatives. If you aren't able to respond in kind, do not respond at all. Now, are you open to that? Thank you in advance.
