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




… Lord, will you give me a merry heart,

For those I love, for me to go through this plight?

… The road is too long, I know.

Is beset with fears and woe;

Grievous things and pain!

How great is my longing for laughter again!

I long a smile that says, “I love you;

“You’ll be alright, this can’t be true!”


… Throughout these trying test,

And years ahead, Lord, I’ve been blest.

Teach me to view clearly this new life;

And learn to have compassion not strife!

… Grant me Lord the grace  of a merry heart,

For those I love, for suffering world, take away my plight!! …

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!"
