I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

my brain

my brain believes not what it is told
but what it sees
my brain is meant to know
what is
not what is supposed to be
my brain can see that you are lying
when you call me insane
the doctors cover me with wires
and charge me inside
but still my brain knows
you desire
me to believe
when all you say
are things that mean nothing
it sees through the deceit
you share
you give
and my brain says no
still you force me to agree
but as long as I exist
my brain will resist
all your mastery
