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 Vintage wasted

Oh creator 
How long before you save us
How long before our time
We burn inside
From our sorrow
Our youth has been lost
Offered up
To the merchants of war
In the form
Of a nation's suicide
Grieving mothers
Dead children
We are scarred
Our world shakes
We await the leviathan
To slaughter the beast
We wait for justice
Inside we wait
Destiny delayed
Gives us nothing
A betrayed fate
Amnesiac culture
Repeating mistakes
Without forethought
Great regret
Enormous payment
Without any sort
Of thought
Of the debt
