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




In my melancholy, in my grief

If I had wings, I soar from this cliff.

Plunging up and through sky

Whisking away all my pain and cry

And all I feel inside in this abyss!

But I must say farewell, though I miss

My life! It seems had just begun!

But there I lay, don’t know any fun!


So much happened, so much went wrong

So little went right! I wasn’t strong…

The fight, so endless! The pain gripped so tight!

Didn’t have anyone to pour out my heart!

Yet it spilled upon their feet to see

I lay hopelessly in the sea of destiny!


Then it came the last brutal touch

So savage! I felt it! My life was such!

It knocked me down to me knee

I begged, “Leave me alone! Let me be free”!

I had my final plea, my last!

I thought I could fly, but I passed.

In eternal bitterness, there I lie

Must I no longer portray that I could comply?? …

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!"
