A short poem that tells so much. Your poem reminds me of two verses:

What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? (Psalm 8:4 NAS)

'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.' (Jeremiah 29:11 NAS)

May everyone of us be able live out this principle as we say, "I'll dare to be what God has planned for me."

I enjoyed the repetition in the stanzas. Reminded me a little bit of "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer, about God's hand in creation and destinies.

Really lovely thoughts and so appropriate for a graduation! Well done.

i love the rhythm of this it is almost processional and so fits with a graduation (if they are anything like the ones in the UK that is).
I was slightly thrown by the 4th? stanza/verse where you turn to 3rd person and write about 'he' and i thought for a moment you were talking of God but of course the words did not then make sense.
