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

… Walking among walkers, confined.

Looking among the observers, blind.

So much sadness in me, and I am voiceless.

So much uproar in me, and I am in stress…

… In my thoughts, no more feeling or passion.

In my heart no more thrill or compassion.

I am a vast field without green.

I am a tall mountain I can’t climb…


… No more desire, my soul is dry.

No more waves in brain, I am stone.

Old and bitter story spreads in front of me.

I am a walker in dark alleys to the end…

… Inside me burned so much light.

Now they are a sea of sadness!

The homey castle that was my home;

Turned to a ruin, falls at my feet…

… I am a broken ship in the heart of sea.

Don’t see anything, anywhere, don’t agree!

The waves of darkness and silence-

Drew life out of me like suspense…

… Confined, walking among walkers.

Counting the houses I’ve left behind.

looking among observers, blind.

Hearing the sound of life in my deaf ears!! …

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!"
