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




… Do you ever know

That cruelty never go?

Earthly people sting.

Hurt they bring!

You hide in sky

Where you’re far and high.

Where you despise

All earthly surprise.

… Now I turn my face

From is or is not of this place;

For I burned my heart

By burning my art.

Those pages I miss

Living in this abyss.

cruelty of this crowd

Boils my blood…


… My star, at night

You look like my tears of spite!

Upon roof of sky

You can’t hear my cry.

My star, open a door

For me to soar

To your eternal world

To your eternal world!! …

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!"
