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

“GLOW”

decision

… When darkness slowly creeps,

A silent, vivacious breeze,

Is felt on my colorless face;

And within my soul, restless of chase!

… I feel faint and weak.

All I desire is to rest not seek!

I feel slowly within me,

The fire of life becomes dree!

… My knees buckle and shake;

Can’t support me of this ache.

I feel I may fall in some dark abyss,

When my cheek, the gust of wind kiss!

… Trying to open my eyes-

To see once more the world and skies.

But I find that I can’t though,

The fire of living is now a glow!

… I hear a sound from afar.

It resembles to wailing of a war;

But still fast and faster blow-

Tells me of my dying glow!

… Another gust of wind is near-

To give my face a last cheer.

Frightened and shivering, I know-

The fire of living is now just a glow!! …

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!"
