When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…




On that summer night, she knew life-

Was a cliff she would fall in her strife.

What would push her, no one would ever know!

But she kept falling, unless she knew how to flow…

… Like a virus, depression eaten her away!

No hope her body produce happiness as she did stray.

What she saw blinded her on her way,

As she made her way with so much dismay.

She walked on blackened neighborhood street with fright,

Where she breathed the perfume of freshly cut grass with delight;

Where ominous bats awakened to claim the night!


… Day after day, she fell further and deep!

But no one cared, she had no one to keep!

She approached a comforting figure of a tree.

Branches stretched to her nonentity.

She closed her weary eyes, put the rope around her neck and tree!!

… Not many are aware that life is rage,

When someone lose hope and the urge-

Of pulling herself back up in place;

Instead she let death catch her and embrace!! …

I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"
