If Job stopped by and viewed my pain
He’d raise both hands and claim his cares were few
A hungry hawk strips all my veins
and claws my heart as I am grieving you

If God would put me in his place
For just a simple hour
Could I judge when face to face
Which soul will yield as grief devours

I would flip a pagan coin
Into a pagan sky
Or simply shrug a Titan shoulder
Batting not an eye.

This world declared the death of right
And glibly kills its own
Shed its conscience and remorse---

My God would spurn this throne.

    wow, very powerful one from you. I really like it!! I think there are some people in the word with worse trials than we can ever imagine, even worse than poor Job. Why is life so unfair??
