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

I am not alive
Nor am I dead
I am aware of the moment
But unliving I do not participate
Death is a destination
Destiny and fate
Are my guides
And I refuse
To conform to the rest
I am not part of the hive
And I then have to starve
For an unliving
Undying voice
Is ignored
I refuse to shrive
I am willing to die
For the world has plenty
It doesn't need me
Ignore me at MY peril
Not its peril
I am the one
Who they consider to be
A dead branch
Considered sterile
For I do not obey
My life is ongoing
But ghost-like
And my voice
But echoes
In a language
Few understand
But it resonates in comrades
In their bones to the marrow
