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 Betrayer Amongst Us

To the one
Who does not care
Living a carnivorous
Cannibalistic existence
A life of indifference
Neither joy nor sorrows
Could measure the worth
The seeds of hope planted
Returns with a bitter harvest
How can one account
For such anger
But you don't care
So denounce the truth
Mock the faithful
Eat those
Who gave you hope
It doesn't matter
We've answered
All of our questions
While you scream
All of your accusations
But in time you'll fade
Or become a cancer
