I Did it My Way...

I have always been a go your own way do your own thang kind of girl…
I am sure it exasperated my mom…
I did what was expected of me…
My grades were tight…
Was respectful…
But I always knew my own mind…
I must have been a handful…
I am sure I have been a challenge to my traditional minded man…
He has probably wondered many times…
Lord why can’t this woman just be more…
Something…giggling…
The same has been true of my work…
When I decided to write…
I just wrote…
Didn’t ask anyone anything…
Just did my thang…
Saying…
Hey world I am a writer…
Mostly it has been good…
There have been a few who have poo-pooed my way…
Usually they were selling something…rolling with laughter…
But I just kept on doing…doing…doing…what I was doing…baby…
And in one and half years…
It is coming to fruition…
My books are selling…
Folks are asking me to show up and speak out…
Lord my hometown library known for trying to ban books…
Has all of mine front and center…
Woo hoo hoo…
I am feeling a bit like Sinatra…. ‘I did it my way…fa la la la la’…
Just don’t know how to do it any other way…

Love and Blessings…
Angelia

You have the same traits that I had. Good grades, respect, and my own mind. I spoke whenever I wanted especially when I did not agree with someone. And I don't know how good that is becausee now my 2yo son reminds me of someone...I wonder who it is?

Angelia keep doing you because that is what makes you so unique.
