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

Life exchanged for a message
To resist the flow
A rock in the stream
Honor still a vestige
Resist the control
Exist for the dream
Refuse to fall
For another's power
For another's regime
Die because you believe
Be apart from the tribe
Let your flesh be the currency
For how you will be redeemed

"Thich Quang Duc"
