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

why must we fail?

Human atrocities
Continue as the world
Moves forward in time
Are we doomed to dwell in darkness
Under the dictator's lash
Or will we awaken
Of broken crystal to burning ash
Kristallnacht to Holocaust
From ancient hill to eternal damnation
Har-Megiddo to Armageddon's toll
Will our violence
Be the harvest
Will our legacy
Be our death?
