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

Lost to us

The honored dead
Who gave their lives
Have their passage paid
By the countries who needed
Their service

Escorted to the place
Where their souls
Are kept
They are finally
Allowed to sleep

None embrace
But once there
They enter a dream
That cannot be described

Ethereal spirits
To their king
Are remembered
With honor

More than bones
They are the spark
That live on
They are there
Without pain

At last
