Verses in rhyming couples, quick encouraging and support to keep on smiling in life!

There is my ego and pride,
on my beautiful side.
Not everyone agrees,
what one doesn't like isn't what he sees.
Anger and lust, 
he turns feelings into dust.
I question, why don’t you cheer,
or have some beer.
Life is sometimes hard,
always keep your guard.
But it doesn’t have to be of pain, 
there is so much you can gain.
So open your arms, 
and let out your charms.
Laugh and keep on smiling,
but trouble will never stop piling.
Shoot it with your gaze; 
you are hotter than a blaze.
Interesting and mystical, 
why do we have to be so cynical?
Life is mysterious and deep,
my positivity I’ll try to keep.
Never stop fighting the battle,
even if you’re boiling in a kettle.
Keep your head up high, 
and don’t you sigh.
This is for everyone a chance, 
to learn and always dance.
No matter the sorrow,
the white flag don’t borrow!

Some of the rhymes seem a bit forced (the trouble with rhyming couplets) and at times a little simplistic. Bit Yoda-ish here and there, and the half rhymes draw too much attention to themselves from such a structured approach. Ultimately, the theme of the poem could be overshadowed by the focus on the structure.
