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

After the Fall, He Cried

I grew proud
And fell from the one
Who made me
After my fall
I cried
For seven millenia
Those tears
Seven great jars
Enough to douse
The fires of hell
The world
Outside and in
Are but a shell
For the flesh
To hide sin
Finding truth
Requires seeking
It must be begun
Seeking truth
Requires patience
Patience requires hope
Hope requires love
Love unites us
With the one
Our creator
Of the universe
