How should We approach life? Many styles and various approaches are tried, but do these not compose quackery?

What voyage to which We all partake
As We fill Our lungs with that first breath,
Valueless angers always fellow Passengers;
Setting a totally sea-sick course.

Most of Us attempt Port-of-call type of fake,
Hoping Others rely on trusting faith;
When their need required loyal Supporters;
No one finding much resource.

All stumble along with little stake,
Because cooperation holds such little garth;
While Everyone elects himself a Puppeteer,
Ignoring this control lacks base.

Honesty claims the occassional Flake,
Who insists on more serious starch;
Reducing friends only to those Peers,
Accepting responsibility as ordinary case.

Hi Lawrance,
I hope you do not mind me asking, but why do you double-space your paragraphs?
