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

they never grew up, they were already there

How many lost childhoods pass into the mist
How many lives lost amidst
The never grew up
They were already there
War child
Children wounded by war
Proof that life is unfair
And it goes on
And it only gets worse
Endless atrocities
Brutal realities
Money comes first
Like a curse
