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

Upon this day I remember you

You were attacked
Without a warning
You were wounded
By lust and hatred
You didn't deserve it
No one did
Because of his violence
I was spawned
But still
You saved me
Despite the danger
You carried me
Away from death
You could have let me die
I was helpless
And still you kept me
Safe in your arms
Away from any harm
You were afraid
Like anyone would be
Your life was important
As much as mine
Still my life was spared
Because of you
Your life was placed on hold
Until it was time
I was born
You gave me life
And blessed me
With a spirit divine
