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

Chastised by him still

Chastised by him
The adversary
Challenging me
To dwell in my past
Castrating me
Condemning me
Time proving my fragility
That flesh is temporary
Being human I understand
That this misery cannot last
I am simply a being
Without distinction
Who tried
While my flesh has been animated
There is proof of life
The truth of the corollary
Is that I have worth
Only by my actions
My footsteps left a mark
As if in snow
For every tear I've cried
From everything I've known
Every grieving heart
Every sorrow
What we do
Forward unto the next generation
In the form of the world
By what we leave behind
I will sacrifice all I am
To help my child survive
And avoid humanity's hand
Of mankind
Causing damnation
