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

Pure Truth

So high above the masses
Looking down
Could become difficult
To do so without scorn
But there was one
Who never felt contempt
For those below
Never becoming cynical
His gentle smile
Was worn
With absolute grace
Only the true leaders know
That leaders serve
Those who follow
It is not for show
Or display
But poured from the soul
With the vigor of youth
Pure truth
