The bread of life

I've been so hungry for all my life; trying to look for things to satisify me,
I seemed to have found nothing to keep me full; nor did I found drinks to stop my thirst,
It seemed like I was lost; nowhere on earth to be found,
Walking through the lost desert trying to find my way out,
I kept trying and trying and trying; I just kept wanting to give it all up,
My stomach kept on rumbling and my throat was getting all dry,
I had nothing to eat and there was barely any water,
I was on the verge of giving up; I just wanted to die alone,
Then I saw something so bright; brighter than the sun,
I could see his outline; He was whiter than snow,
I felt so drawn to come nearer to him; I asked where to find the bread and the water to keep my satisfaction,
He said to me, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, he who comes to me will never be thirsty."
I came to him and I followed him and I also believed in him,
I've made my way outside of this desert; I was fully satisified never hungry nor thirsty,
I gave him all my thanks and gave him all the glory,
I gave him my life and he gave me eternal life.


  1. Ian, this is the best thing I've seen all day. I just watched that documentary Make Me Normal on AC and I commented about it there but that's how I found this site. I love it. Great poetry. Here's mine:

    I just made this site a couple weeks ago. Poetry and other stuff. It's so weird and cool to find a fellow Autie who is a Christian and likes poetry! Keep it up!

    1. Thanks for the comment and I find it rather interesting how people actually seem to find this poetry to be interesting.
      Your blog seems interesting, nice one. :D
