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

we are vampires, we are not alive

When the world can't hear the crying
Of the children who starve every day
Or notice that the oceans are dying
Or the ethics that get in the way
Pollution is killing our lungs
We can't remember the time
When minds were free from drugs
Or it was safe to go outside
We don't understand our rage
Our souls turned into a blackhole
Sucking life from our days
We pour waste where'ver we go
And we hope that it goes away
Like fools we' ignore our need
To breathe and we forget
Our longing for life
We sit upon our hands
And refuse to believe
End up begging for strife
