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

wherever death finds them

Every massacre has a list of dead
Every death has a memory of life
Every loss diminishes this world
The living are left with memories

We haven't learned our history
How many are taken before their time
Their lives a testament to human cruelty
Is this our full and final legacy

Whatever the cause whatever the number
Humanity is waiting for the next disaster
Humans are a catastrophe in progress
Waiting our chance to the final dance

Disease and war, greed and hate
Humans have yet to overcome
So we wait
