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

Time Never Ends

If you live as if life has no ending
You risk losing what you have
And all that you desire
But you will live
If you, like miser, hold it all
Tightly to your chest
You can keep it
Forever with you
In your grave
With nothing to else
That can comfort you
The rest of your journey
The despair of a lifetime
Will linger
Memories like echoes
Through the years
Time moves on
Without your permission
Aging happens
And the seasons flow
We have no control
Over any of life's inertia
We can neither stop it
Nor slow it down
We cannot cheat death
Nor avoid it
We only have hope
To find a way
To move our soul
From this world
To the next
To translate
Life in physical form
To something different
