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

Forbidden circumstances
Nothing left inside
Blank stares
Taking chances
Closed minds
Preaching to the masses
Playing a game
Called hangman
There is no winner
And to play you will die
Losers all around
Can't face the end
Can't choose the noose
In the end
They cut you down
You'll lay in a heap
Upon the ground
