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

Human Flaws

Destroy, consume and reveal
I cannot conceal
How my life has transformed
From death to life reborn
Watching the smoke rise 
Black and thick into the sky
No bitterness is left
No time to rest
I never knew to fail
I lifted the veil
There is nothing inside
To make me decide
That my life is worthless
I will not acquiesce
To the shame
Of my humanity
