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

And they Labor

The world is built
Empowered as well
By the human flesh
Human mindpower
And by steel
How many hours
Will the back withstand
Before it breaks
Under the weight of labors
Which are endless
Productivity requires sweat
And power to create
With precision, grace and blood
Their labors are remembered
For every minute spent
The future is born
With a foundation of steel
Carried upon the back
Of the past
