My Way - Poem by Frieda Lumpkins

Just a plain ole country girl
My writing, leaves some peoples head in a whirl
I put on paper, whats on my mind
I am sorry, if these poems sound unkind

But these poems are my life
A life of misery and strife
I try not to use words nobody ever heard
This is the way I was raised and how I learned

To say whats on your mind
Sometimes, even if it's unkind
Poems are from a person heart
And this is how it all starts

What I don't say in person, comes out as I write
This is how I stay alive, Because I am to old to fight
I do it my way, because it comes from my heart
And it was meant to be from the start

Just a ole country girl, I do what helps me
And I hope some day, a lot of people will see
