Murphy's Law

Written by: Louise Picek

I sit here,
disappointed in this failed plan,
not completely surprised at this fate,
Murphy has decided to step into my space.

I saw it coming,
its how my story goes,
I try to go my own way,
but in his mischievous head shows.

Here I go again,
seems the phrase is true,
"Expect the worst, hope for the best"
what else is a girl to do?

I'd like to say I was cold to this,
didn't really care,
but honestly, even with the expectation,
I was hoping Murphy wouldn't show up here.

So here I sit alone now,
wishing one day I'd be free,
but Murphy keeps on showing up,
he has his own plans for me.
