Syllable count: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc. PLUS a philosophical statement
Any combination of a prime number syllable count may be used per line, to avoid mirror images as this will detract from the free style feel. The line breaks serve as punctuation and no caps used, unless it is called for.

at the age of five I'm yanked from my mother's arms crying desperately clinging on but she can't protect me from these men who use force to separate us without pity or mercy dragging me away screaming as they barred her way cramming me into a van with other children calling for their moms they took us to a fenced in area and locked us in cages as if we were animals I would give anything to see her again I'll never forget her face or the terror in her eyes when we entered the United States and they stole her child from her arms (Suzette Prime) 06,18,2019
