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

Modern Society Arguments

One strives to tell us how there is nothing
So ardent and proud and loud
As if he has traveled everywhere
While the other says he IS God
So self aware and deep
One turns to science for truth
While another says only
By his interpretation
Despite his being confused
My mind takes in just so much before
I scream in terror
Or my mind simply
Bursts into a thin red mist
This world so frozen at the core
How can it function
Without love or joy
I am blinded by the sanctimonious
Empty displays by
The ironically empty
If I take it to mean
I am meant to fall
Because one cannot stand
Against the many
Then let me fall
But let me be
By my being called
By those who believe
