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

“I WILL RETURN”

… Here I am so far from home;

and wondering just now.

it came to pass that I should be-

so far from you right now!

… I can not really understand-

just why I want to stay;

and yet I often hope for when-

I’ll be returning home some day!

… I want to live most anywhere,

as long as I can roam;

and someday you’ll be seeing me-

walking down the street toward home.

… Until that day is finally here,

I will not cease to pray-

that God will always keep you,

until I am home to stay!! …

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!"
