Why can't I make non-rhyming poetry?

I've tried in the past and a few times I have made somewhat decent ones, but the urge to throw in a rhyme is often so strong that I do it without even thinking about it. Tell me what you think of this one and if you think I could somehow change it to a non-rhyming theme. Also if you like it please give a star, so many of these posts go up I never get a chance to get a large range of comments.

I really don't want complements either unless you have something constructive to say, I write these for my own pleasure, but I love honest critique.

Today has run away with me

With crazy possibilities

And tedious uncertainties

Of what tomorrow brings

Today will bring tomorrow's past

A day that came and went too fast

To understand at very last

What tomorrow brings

Today I live, tomorrow die

But will I live or will I cry (not crazy about this one line either)

In shame to know today's a lie

What does tomorrow bring?

Tomorrow's here, my day has come

To say goodbye to all I've done

But as I face the setting sun

I know what tomorrow brings
