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

falsus pater

The world was not ready
For my appearance on this earth
How did I survive
The legacies
Of the troubled origin
Of my being
The time of reckoning
Put off for a while
Only a blessing
Or a stronger curse
Allowed my existence
Never to dream
Or experience
For if
The seed been planted
But a decade later
My flesh would be recanted
Like a vow from a falsus pater
Promising to love forever
My soul would follow flesh
The seed bitter
Upon an alien planet
Never planted or growing
The embryonic seed
Never finding breath
Slain by treachery
Of a cold hand
Of medicine
And then
I am a stain
Thereafter for the ever
Of her memory
A planter being hated
For his manner of infestation
So evil
And toxic
His hand
