No obligation to rhyme

Example.

Unrequited love.
A malady which sadly has no cure.
Yet we still survive.
Although we wish some times that we were dead.
Death is no sinecure.

Yet we still survive.
Although sometime we wish that we were dead
Death is no sinecure
We have to learn to bear the pain
we cant discard it will remain.

We have to learn to bear the pain
we cant discard it will remain
Until at last we find.
A new love free to love us too
as most of us are sure to do.
