    A pilot charters the plane and takes control of the passenger’s lives and guides them safely. By symbolizing God as the pilot of the poem, the poet wants to say that one should keep their faith on God as He will guide the destiny of all human beings. God will protect and look after other through his “Divine Presence.”
