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

Calling us from the dust

We ask
Without reply
We wait for an answer
Ignoring the doublespeak
Of a technocracy who killed its gods
Devoured its children
And blackened the horizon
Seeing a future turned empty and bleak
We seek but we do not learn
There is nothing left but hate
For the enemy, fictional or real
Our species exists but our moment of action is now
The balance of terror between violence and peace
Is tread without care
The world makes choices
But humans have more power than brains or wisdom
We rejoice over our discoveries
Ignoring the fact that power will be found
In the hands of those who desire to use it upon others
While the lesser villains look on jealously
Aglow with joy for the possession of nuclear fire
