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

Our Quest

Whatever we face
We all must embrace
The eventuality of our test
Ending with death
There is nothing left
Our flesh is dust
Made of clay
Only the spark remains
So live this existence
With defiance towards fear
And resistance
Towards malevolence
And live only
To know
What is true
Our life is worth
Only what we make it
By creating our earth
With kindness
Our reality
With gentleness
And our future
With hope
