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

I still feel his thunder
I still cringe for the following strike of the bolt
I heard the anger in his voice
And made quick inventory and wonder
If I made a mistake
Or just randomly struck a nerve
But the mercurial nature
Of unrequited anger
Or rage
Is hard to fathom
Especially as a child wondering
What he might deserve
