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

Grow

To some, a curious mind is a cancer
To question always, never finding answers
To others a curious mind is great thing
Learning and using knowledge
Allows a life of more than simple needing
Ask and know
Be silent and stunt your growth
Always seek
Always find
Always dream
Feed your mind

The Sphinx asked: "Which creature has one voice and yet becomes four-footed and two-footed and three-footed?"

Oedipus answered: "Man—who crawls on all fours as a baby, then walks on two feet as an adult, and then uses a walking stick in old age."
