The Way of a Gemini

It's complicated, the way of the Gemini
Certainly a personality that catches one's eye
Sharing the beholder's personality between two
Neither can take over in a form that's true
Choosing between that of the light and of the darkness
Between the emotions of the joy or the ominous

Choose to aid with the light of the guardian
Or fight with the assistance of the inner demon
Cannot be described as good or evil, neither
They merely share the reflection staring among the mirror
Split in two, but always together as one
A constant war in which neither has won

Even in quarrel, they stay hand in hand
When necessary, one is called forth at the beholder's command
In happiness, joy and bravery, the guardian is called
In anger, fear and sadness, the inner demon is called
But both play the role in being a shield of the soul
For one's heart needs protection by both as a whole

The beholder cannot choose one side of their Gemini
Because the two come together as one, without deny
When darkness and light come together in one host
One aids as the other lies in the shadows, waiting 'til needed most
Complicated until comes simplicity, that is what may truly lie
In one's life who lives the way of a Gemini
