Bread of life

After John 6:1-15. 24-40

Fed, and fed 

well, they follow 

as he walks

down the mountain, 

down to the lake. 

They find him 

on the shore

opposite, and, 

surprised he's 

there, they question

him, seeking the bread

he spoke about. 

the bread he offered, 

wanting it

always. I am 

the bread,

he says; I am 

here to feed you, 

to sustain all 

I’ve been given 

and to raise it up. 

Eat this bread, and 

you live forever.
