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 Way

It isn't about the rules although they exist
It isn't about how strong you are
Or how many men you've defeated
You are responsible for yourself
In the final tally of worth
And the Way of how you follow
The Way of how you resist the world
Are all the proof
The path is in fact narrow
But there are many paths
We bring through diversity
A myriad of ways
Finding that one you create
Is worthy
No matter who much others deny it
Your life, your way is how you define it
