Those And These

Active and passive 
the voices that govern 
a language.

Quiet and  aggressive
the manner which reign
with a supremacy.

Hot and cold 
those of which 
 affect the weather,

The extremes 
 fasten and unfasten
 as and when they wish.

Ups and downs 
being responsible for 
success and failure.

That which happens 
those which escape
do take place on their own,

Exceptions are not many, 
a handful so to say 
almost negligible.
