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

Just a moment in time… when the bells chime!

Just a moment of sorrow!… Do I have a better tomorrow?

Nowhere to turn… many lives burn

Or faded away,… because they dismay!

To stay!… Fires burn and slay!

Deep with the soul of man… All creatures can

Walk around… with their hearts beat and pound!

In their hands!… No passion in sands

For life… that is not rife!

Fully many live… with passion and love give

A natural reaction, just… A moment in time must

Just a moment of sorrow… Not seeing a better tomorrow!

Nowhere to turn... for all is stern!! ...

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!"
