Starting to write lyrics and want to stick to conventional 16 bar verses. I have a sample below of some lyrics w/ the bar count in paraenthesis next to them. AM I COUNTING THEM RIGHT?

cant even do my best anymore(1),struggle and strife always trying to roar(2),
get it off my chest and soar (3), but Im juggling knifes getting cut more (4)
matt's always been one for pain(5), hes been on that shit destroying his brain(6)
thats why theres so much disdain(7), life is a a spill an irremovable stain(8).

Couldn't remove it and tried to lose it(9), the most urgent detergent for the situation(10)
thats why hes chooses the shit(11), feeling like an insurgent with no indoctrination(12).
thats why he moves backwards in stagnation(13), daily procrastination and weekly masturbation(14)
watching you tube videos and steadily hatin,(15) why these motherfuckers getting cake then?(16)

Did you write it to a beat?, I think it kind of depends on the bpms, but try reciting it to a song you know has 16 bars between verses and see how it fits.
