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

Children Suffer

The ones who suffer are the ones
Who've yet to do anything
Our hands wring
For our own suffering
But the greatest is paid
Poured out to the youngest
To those most innocent
Who's lives are spent
In sorrow
Every child is a miracle
Each of their sorrows is a crime
Every child's heart is special
And that only changes
Over time
