Opposites

Old and new,

everything has

a beginning and an end,

a youngest and an eldest.

Cause and consequence

all future has

a present and a past,

and all races have

a first and a last.

Like hot and cold

most have an opposite

singular and plural,

dark night and sunny day.

Because sometimes

opposites link and become,

the difference is not

in the meaning,

but in how we apply it.
