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.

One to Fear

For my lifetime
I was one to fear
The depths of the abyss
I tried to become sinless
In an effort to become
More than I am
And I've begun
To see
How someone
Could become lonesome
In the knowledge
That it is easier
To do
Than to not do
When pleasure is the guide
And you are weak
All alone
without a reason
Other than some far off destiny
That you might not achieve
Fate is unkind
And the ultimate end
Does not equate with belief
But rather
And the end of the question
When do I experience enough pain
And stress
To give in
And sleep
