The Man I Am

Like Job I have fussed and fumed,
    cried and cursed,  
    felt forsaken and forgotten
By a God who watched silently
    offering no words,
    no sign of hearing.

Like David I must confess,
    and point at me,
    instead of You,
For it is not You who sinned
    but me, only me,
    my foolishness, not Yours.

Like Adam I can only claim
    what is mine to claim,
    choices and hurts,
Which warrant Your wrath,
    instead, You choose
    merciful forgiveness.

(Psalm 38)
