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

the dreamer dreamt

the dreamer dreamt
of a world dying
a people sleeping
awakened by crying
screaming and fleeing
running from the destruction
the bombs fell and war had begun
no one was going to be able to thrive
some could survive
some would last
alive but barely living
the sirens wail
not to warn us
but to tell us how we've failed
the dreams haunt the dreamer
how the future plays
upon his screen
is not in his control
how many wish the future
to be beautiful
are many
how many act to make it so
are few
so very few
