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

A future of sorrow

There was no infinity
For the green and blue orb
Now barren of divinity
The damage unabsorbed
So many wars
Extermination of those
Considered to be others
Humanity left its tattoo
A scar
Upon the breast
Of its mother

Leaving a planet stripped of worth
Many fled to the stars
They were unaware bearing the curse
Of a plundered earth
They escaped the doom
Of the planet disowned
There was not enough room
After it was made
A forbidden zone
So many now
Children left behind
Seeking food or shelter
Virgins disavowed
Hidden inside
Bunkers filled with the rich
And the elders
The children ignored
Now wander
Without hope
