Ms. Pauline Lampkin, a wife, mother, and former Chicago Public Schools science teacher who taught at Gwendolyn Brooks High School, is a creative nonfiction and fiction writer as well as a poet. She is a fan of "Zane-like" chic lit. Her prose have chronicled romance between sheets, heart-filled family dramas, and poignantly-bold poetry. Through her stories and rhymes, she's unafraid to say what we think but would never say, and that's why readers and listeners alike are captivated from her first, to her last words.

Undefined By Others I'm a witch in the kitchen and a bitch in the bed, Undefined by others, Yet refined by the extremities of my soul, Only to be ruled by my endless spirit and the brain in my head. I am whomever I determine me to be, Undefined by others. --- By Pauline Lampkin

Undefined By Others

I'm a witch in the kitchen and a bitch in the bed,

Undefined by others,

Yet refined by the extremities of my soul,

Only to be ruled by my endless spirit and the brain in my head.

I am whomever I determine me to be,

Undefined by others.
