TITLE: Storms of Life

My arms rest gently behind my head
Listening to what the calming wind has said
As it cascades so gently through my hair
Uncertain and afraid of the world out there
Quietly the wind of time is passing by
I cannot question its how’s or why’s
The sun burns gently upon my face
Not comprehending its moment or its place
Stars light the midnight sky so true
Every night a little more of heaven’s renewed
Each the bluest daylight sky shows
So unsure of what it knows
The clouds simply must question
Or perhaps offer their suggestion
Is a dash of sun and sprinkle of rain simply okay
Or was it planned to be another way
It will only follow what its Creator allows
Such as a human mind filled with such unfailing doubt
Never comprehending what he’s truly all about
The Creator’s so much of everything pure
I wish so much I could everything just as clear
The stormy clouds, the heartfelt rain
That the beauty of life is truly found in pain
In the calmness of the storm
Is where I find purpose the reason I was born
Pausing for a moment, I finally take my stand
He reaches out and pulls me onto land
He touches me with His death upon the cross
He found me drowning among the lost
In the tempest of the waves
He held me close to him, no reason to be afraid
Gently calling me to his side
For this is why he was crucified
The storms of life fill us with doubt
And the eye of the storm is what this life is all about
Into the center we’ll dangerous trudge
So fearful, afraid and alone, a quiet whisper and a gentle nudge
Through the darkest storm at hand
In the calmness we’ll found His purpose and finally take our stand

This was good. The rhyme scheme worked well.

Some lines didn't fit the rhythm, however, especially some of the longer ones. I'd also suggest putting an extra line of space ever 2 or 4 lines in a poem like this.

I loved they pictures you painted in this poem. Great job. Keep writing!

How sweet!

I love poetry! You do have some great rhyming words: "question/suggestion" and "trudge/nudge" come to mind. I really like your title too.
