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

When Death has Victory

We dance with death
Every day we do
Our time is short
Death is not a friend
Sometimes life is not
We wait for joy to happen
If our existence can find accord
But the dance itself
Is not worth the wait
But Death gets the final word
Our prayers
Our imaginings
Our greatest wishes
Become true
But so far
We don't know
And won't
You know
You find out the hard way
