I Wish I Didn’t Care

***Recently, while going through the family home after losing my mother to Covid, I came across the writing of my great-grandmother, Minnie Louise Bumphrey, who was a published writer and poet. Over the next few days I will be sharing her works on my blog.***

I wish I didn’t care when folks speak cross to me.

I wish I didn’t care how cold some folks may be.

I wish I didn’t care when things go wrong and just forget my worries with a song.

I wish I didn’t care when I can’t have my when way, when things just don’t get done for many a day.

If I could just take things easy and drift along and banish all my worries with a song.
