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 Judgment

Far away is a place
Where the human heart
Is measured
Eternity and reality embrace
And our lives come into balance
Flesh and Spirit are held
Over fire
When the results are known
There is no shame
No elation
The heart that is weighed
The end has come
The flesh decays
The mind is a liar
It doesn't know the truth
No, it never does
But the soul inside
Always knows
Between evil and good
