Reading about Job
Feel like I can relate
Wasn’t left by his wife
But she rejected him
All the same
He lost his livelihood
Livestock and barns
Boils and maladies
The loss that stung
His daughters and sons
Taken away from him

Job 3:1-6 (NIV) After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. 2 He said:
3 “May the day of my birth perish,
and the night that said, ‘A boy is conceived!’
4 That day—may it turn to darkness;
may God above not care about it;
may no light shine on it.
5 May gloom and utter darkness claim it once more;
may a cloud settle over it;
may blackness overwhelm it.
6 That night—may thick darkness seize it;
may it not be included among the days of the year
nor be entered in any of the months.
