Growing In Spirit Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCDEFGHIJ

He who hopes to grow in spiritA
will have to transcend obedience and respectB
He'll hold to some lawsC
but he'll mostly violateD
both law and custom and go beyondE
the established inadequate normF
Sensual pleasures will have much to teach himG
He won't be afraid of the destructive actH
half the house will have to come downI
This way he'll grow virtuously into wisdomJ
