Be Enlightened! Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCDEAE FGHIJAK LEMKNEO

A candle burns brightlyA
Dispels darkness aroundB
Siddartha s senses bloomedC
In the gloom he became BuddhaD
Veiled reality recused shatteredE
Exuding enlightenment eventuallyA
Shining steadily forever haloedE
-
Worldwide peace struggles stillF
Melancholy thy name s nemesisG
Decimating death revokes peaceH
Man s on a perpetual precipiceI
Gambling grace or a sordid fallJ
Dangling the Chance carrot freelyA
Evil entreats fear sabre rattlingK
-
Live to learn and learn to liveL
Love life to peacefully co existE
His divinity desired mankind be soM
Yet believers are wantonly warringK
Faithfully following one s own faithN
Even as a free thinker one is tooE
Enlightened existence is possibleO
