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




Perhaps it is not always by choice

That we must face an ultimate challenge.

And perhaps it is our wish to absolve ourselves from our perils

And plead for assistance from everyone to save our lives.

But sometimes we are left with only our own self

And it may take all we have inside to go forward

In order for us to survive.


And a hero doesn’t necessarily suddenly decide a feat to overcome

As perhaps a peril may choose to defeat the spirit.

And this is when the soul is empowered

And we come to realize that

That it is with our immortality

That our mortality can be rescued!! …

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!"
