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

Some are
To enter legend
Heroes reply
To the quest
To answer
The question
Committing to a task
With danger and death
The Gods watch
As the hero acts
Culture will remember
And should the hero succeed
Will be remembered
For his deeds
And become
Part of the pantheon
Of those favored
By the Gods
