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

Death by my hand

To be able to see the future through the past
Is a talent few have
But I do
I know that what I've done will fail
Why it will fall
Why I will die
Because what I do is cursed
My life was never what it should have been
And I have dishonored my name
Dishonored the earth
By being here
Without purpose
I am lost
And do not wish to be found
For there is no end
That is cleaner
If by my own hand
I take all the blame
I caused my pain
And I deserve it all
Between my fear and failings
I've destroyed any hope
And trained my brain
To hope to fail
Because I am
The end is within my hands
My fate is my right index finger
