i think its very simple you can go for custom field implementation like
public class vLabelField extends Field {
	String text;
	public vLabelField(String t) {
		text = t;
	protected void paint(Graphics graphics) {
		int y=0;
		int oldcolor = graphics.getColor();
		for(int i=0;i<text.length();i++){
			graphics.drawText(text.substring(i,i+1), 0, y);
	protected void layout(int width, int height) {
		width = Font.getDefault().getAdvance('M');
		height = Font.getDefault().getHeight()*text.length();
Its not a optimized piece of code. Its just for giving you a idea.
