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

Rise up, Consume the hubris in fire

I saw a world before me
Filled with the poor
The wounded
The hungry
And only then did I see
The great war
By those with money
Towards their lessers
We are not able
Despite our rage
To rise to meet them
Because of our chains
We are tired
Oh God, hear our cry
Bring food to the table
Bring reward to our toil
Bring hope to our days
And consume the hubris
With eternal fires
