When we make wrong turns and fail to do what’s right,
He is who we pray to in the darkest nights.
Present He is in twisted times.
Gives us direction and a sense of time.
He is in all conversations hearing for truth,
In fields, swamps and gas stations, too.
Gives and takes thumps of hearts and breathing.
He is who, lets sunshine rise,
Filling the morning sky.
In a single moment He transforms time.
The glory of His being is questioned by some,
But not by those who are God’s sons.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem as an english assignment inspired by the novel "Peace Like a River" written Leif Engler.

oh you have some wonderful lines. your sentences were just lovely and honest and did make me think on god.

um my criticism would be that as a unified poem it wasn't as spectacular as it could have been.
