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

Rise up, Rise

You may not understand but now is the hour
We all bear lightning from our hands
Born of fire embued with life
We are able to command such power
For we are made in the image of God
We create as did our maker
We translate our birth
As a gift of nature
But it was created by the one
Who embued us with such fire
Never back down never give ground
We are the ones born of fire
We are the ones who have begun
The long path ordered to restore the throne
Of the one who made us as his own
We all bear lightning we all were born
Of molten steel, with a purpose
Never to fall, never to fail
Made for a reason, to prevail
So rise up, so rise
