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

The Titans, Children of Gaia and Uranus

They were hated by their father
The titans were born
To mother earth Gaia
Immediately to be scorned by Uranus
He set himself to fix upon his children
Anger and disgust
Enmity and rage
Cursed them with indifference
And Uranus was brought low
By Chronos
Aided by Gaia
And castrated him
Throwing his seed to the oceans
Creating a cycle
For Uranus was set down by Chronos
And Chronos set down by his child
And Zeus will be set down
By mankind
Never tamed
Still wild
