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

False Hope Generation

we destroy
more than we've ever built
we are ignorant
every dream is covered
with false gilt
we've been breeding it
Directly from our arrogance
that we could ever fail
We simply believe
it is meant for us
but that is a lie
there is no justice
the world seems to think
that nothing is worth dying for
when in fact, that just points
to the decline, we make our own world
if we hold it to be sacred
and life to be precious
every life
every breath taken
a miracle
instead we assume
it was meant to be
forgetting every single act
that led us here
so keep staring at your screen
never live your dreams
sleep in the skin
you've given
you are all correct
there is nothing
worth dying for
