Welcome


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

Loss

Lost generations
Tortured souls
Bones piled high
Slaughtered like beasts
But they were human
Lands and dignity stolen
By greedy hands
By dirty hands
That killed without remorse
Hiding their deeds without shame
Genocide
Hate filled core
Victims became the blame
And responsibility for the crimes
Were ignored
And it continues
And will continue
Until mankind is restored
Either by fire
Or renewal
Inside

Remembering the lost
Native Americans
Armenians
Jews
Rwandans
Cambodians
Bosnians
Ukrainians
