We live

We die

We laugh

We cry

We love

We hate.

And this is innate.

It is who we are and what we become

As sure as the Moon and the stars and the Sun.

We can try to hide side by side

Sit on a fence.

Watch the past the present and future tense.

But acceptance is the key

To know who we are and what we can be.

Who are you?

Open your eyes and see.

    Your poetic construction seems really quite random, John. Again I like this because it works. The rhyming scheme works well, even if it looks random, it works. In spite of this it still has a distinct rhythm. In some of my own free flowing poems (free verse), with less of a ‘uniform construction’, this sort of ‘rhythm and rhyme within the line’ also works; it’s great stuff.
