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

Sisyphus was tormented
To push a boulder up a hill
Only for it to roll back
Never allowing a moment
Of rest, or a life to fulfill
We push all the time
Nothing changes
Nothing will
Those who believe life is a ride
Sit back waiting
For some thrill
But the boulder comes back
Time after time
