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

Open up your heart and your eyes

Whatever you've been told
The day is long enough
And you are not too old
Tomorrow is not lost to this day
Society doesn't have to decay
Who are we to throw the world away
When there is so much more
That can be done
To save it
To save us
Open the door
And accept my hand
Let us be united
In the resistance
To the end
We have so much
We can do
Don't turn your face
From the darkness
We have to fight
The darkness within us
And the darkness out
Of this
Not tomorrow
Time is of the essence
And our work is waiting
For our hands
And heart
And eyes
Wake up
To a new way
To deal with the lies
To deal with the spectacle
Of the outside world
And escape
From the tentacles
Of greed
Of hate
Waste and insane
