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

In death, In life

Some things are temporal
Others transcend
Beauty exists eternal
Flesh meets end
Death consumes Life
The serpent swallows the tail
And the circle is complete
Joy and strife
Victory and defeat
To triumph and to fail
All is a moment
In the eye of the eternal's gaze
For the truth is greater
The reality goes far beyond
All we perceive
Whether we trust or distrust
Whether we believe it
Or think it will deceive us
Reality exists
Beauty is eternal
And the cycle is perfect
Life is glorious
Death is triumphant
And birth renews us
And death takes us
Back to the cycle
That exists
