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

“ENGULFED BY MANY”

… As I sit, engulfed by many, I feel the tension in the air.

Smiling faces and phony laughter, Can I hide the silent stare?

… No words can express the feeling that only eyes can bring across,

A feeling of complete and utter despair of something that was lost!

… Yet as I look around the room and join their fun,

I feel their eyes shoot through me, like the bullets of a gun!

… They smile and pretend to care, but never truly listen.

And the tears forming in my eyes against the light that glisten…

… I send a silent cry for help, through this silent stare of my mind;

And though engulfed by many, they all seem to be blind!

… If they only all take time to look around and see,

The pain in each other eyes, the pain in you and me…

… No one seems to know the meaning of MANY, or its importance;

Or even the need of a shoulder to cry on in times of hurt in distance.

… As it turns out, what I thought was lost, was never lost at all;

But instead it was never there, it was a dream, so dull.

… This dream I have dreamed so long, I thought it had turned real;

But now I know I was just overwhelmed by what I long to feel!! …

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!"
