January 20th: My Birthday


Oh what a pleasant day!
Today marks the birthday of a legend
A legend in me.

My birthday falls on a Sunday
A very special day,
A day in which God rested off of his creation.

This is the day the Lord has made
And it is precious in my sight
For indeed I know I'm blessed.

Today is my birthday
Today is Sunday
Today rain falls for the very first time this year.

Is it not pleasant?
