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

Who Am I?

The false echoes that infect my history
Telling me I am not who I am supposed to be
Ruin my present, for the fear of the past
That I will fail any given task
And let my loved ones down
False memories false legacies
Crushing me
Killing me
Who I am is who I want to be
Not a template from another being
Forcing false beliefs upon me
The world is hard enough
Without requiring me to uphold
A hero's destiny
