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

A Choice Filled with Fire

I was never perfect
But I made a choice
That redeemed
All of my failings
I inhaled
The breath of fire
And the spirit
Entered my being
And I touched
The face of the divine
Despite my flesh
Being cursed
Despite my body
Never leaving earth
I was now able
To soar across the sky
Enter the twilight
And never die
Due to the spirit fire
That was lit
