Bookcase chaos

Before we had our baby girl
who makes our life so merry
I had a sanctuary of my own
that I called my library
A room so filled with hope
in the form of books a-plenty
a place you could just lose yourself
in stories that transport you away
But now the room belongs to her
our sweet Little Missus
so my books have found new homes
on different bookcases
But in the room of Fussypants
the case always looks like this
a constant state of chaos
there is no book bliss
No matter what I do or what I say
the placement ends up always
upside down and backwards
and difficult to decipher
And here my hope does wane
tested tested tested
this mess, this unorganized mess
really drives me insane
How can one enjoy
the pleasure reading brings
when you cannot find the book you want
because you treat the stories
like nothings 
My feeble attempt at poetry and my loose interpretation of hope is for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, prompt #2: April is national poetry month…Write a poem about hope.
