Welcome


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

Metamorphosis

To sleep at night
Is a normal behavior
We hope to be renewed
From the constant struggle
And the ongoing worries
We aren't looking for a savior
Just to find a way, to go on
With no greater dream
Than to finally escape
Life offers no end,
Only a journey
We are never ready
But we are prepared to wait
For those who seek
Terminus does not exist
Never dying
We change
From flesh to spirit
Energy eternal
There is no grieving
As we enter spirit life
We have entered our metamorphosis
Embracing lessons
Perhaps harshly learned
But without regret
Not missing the pain of strife
We transform
With the everlasting
Our destination
