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

Bones and lies, do not define me

What evidence can I present
That will prove my reasons
I was honest and trustworthy
I never lied, I was honorable
I did not commit treason

Still you disbelieve
You crush my body
You slander my name
Destroy my memories
Bring my house shame

Because of you I am lost
Cast into the emptied waste
Forced to suffer hunger
Forced from my lands
But I will not relent

Every choice you make
To separate me from my kin
Strengthens my resolve
And those who know me
Never questioned my honor

They never wondered
If your lies were true
So you have failed
And when my time is ripe
This ghost of the wasteland will strike
