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

Angel with black wings

Have we been cursed
To be the bringer of death
Or are we blessed
And we shall survive
Are we the virus
Immune to our own sickness
We were born
To be the death of all others
A killer of all that lives
The sole survivor
Of all life on this planet
Are we the angel of death
Hovering black wings
Waiting to kiss
We do deliver
Bodies to the abyss
Were we just sent
To destroy and conquer
Have our energies gone
Entirely to destruction
Are we only trained to kill
All others who ponder
The meaning of life
Have we been cursed
Are we meant to steal the breath
Of everyone else that breathes
Are we meant to bring death
Humanity is cold
Fighting wars
Causing famines
Allowing atrocities
Destroying homes
Leaving scars
Untamed and angry
Our souls refuse to find peace
