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

Inexplicably why does one want to be free?

Is it to be free of chaos,

Or the freedom of ideas that lead to enmity?

Is it free of good and evil,

Or the feeling of haunting guilt in memory?

Is it to be fee of confusion,

Or all the things that lead us to that mystery?


Is it to be free of what others think,

Or the neurotic disturbance of our sanity?

Is it to be free of early years,

Or the anxious flowing of feeling aimlessly?

Is it to be free of fearing death,

Or the enticement to run away from that tragedy?

… But isn’t everyone’s life a tragedy at the end?? …

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!"

Let everybody be nice!
