Unfortunately this is true
"Heavens , What a Mess" by jusylee72
I don't know how it happens.
It simply seems to be.
Where ever I may find myself,
a mess will follow me.

Daddy told me long ago
It started as a child.
My sister was perfection
She walked about in style

But I could walk into a room
I'd never seen before
and somehow things would follow me
and land upon the floor.

I quickly learned to never buy
clothes in shades of white.
Sudden stains will just appear
Be it day or night.

Closets are a place to hide
Clutter I have kept
It's hard to throw away my stuff
I just might need It yet.

An empty box, an old receipt,
a worn out pair of pants,
a wrapper from a treasured gift,
a card from my dear aunt.

Ok, my story has been told.
I simply will confess.
No matter what I try to be,
My life is just a mess.
