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

If Eternity is real

“Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.”
Lao Tzu

We strive to live but also to escape death
But if eternity is real
They are a cycle
Meant for some purpose
Every second ticking
Every living breath
Is meant to teach us something
This temporal existence fades
But the eternal one grows
The body grows old
The flesh grows cold
Here is not meant to be permanent
Now is the next moment of the past
Death is to be welcomed
When the time is bold
And the next step taken
Is into the unknown
