Welcome


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

Breaking

Dear God
I am breaking
Doing the best I can
My dreams were over
Even before my life began
No matter what I hoped
I was a child
I never became a man
Waiting for a mother
A boy
Waiting for his dad
Never
Became what he wanted
Never
More than simply being sad
I know that
I have a lot more to be
Thankful for
But when tears are dry
From constant fall
Nothing to do
But scream
You eventually say
What's the use
And I do
And I know
What is the use
Of anything
