Times When I Smile

You may not even know me,
Or know what I mean,
Understand my world,
Or hear me when I scream.

You may not ever see me,
Or ever touch my mind,
Because all that is real
Are only dreams in time.

Don't try to fit me in
To your ridged mold,
All the world is free,
At least, thats what I'm told.

So please, don't scream and worry
Or cry for me at night.
No matter how I'm different,
I will win my fight.

I will be the victor
Of all my many trials,
Because all that's real are dreams,
And times when I smile.

    Lovely poem! ! ! I like poems that rhyme even if it is just the 2nd & 4th lines. But on this, the last stanza has no rhyming words on both 2nd & 4th lines. Perhaps, the 2nd line can be: " Of all my many trials in a mile, " then insert a word or two on the last line before the word " times" .
