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

“CRY YOU CHILD”

Cry, cry you child in the corner of the room.

It’s coming, it’s coming, with it find them soon.

Cry, cry for the love, the hurt, the pain.

It’s coming, it’s coming, but the child knows its name.

Cry, cry for the child, the blame, the shame.

It’s running, it’s running, just call it a game.

Cry, cry for the child, knowing the price.

It’s running, it’s running, as if just rolled the dice.

How to wish for rainbow, wish for stars.

It can take them away, can leave them with scars…

Cry, cry you child, in the corner of the room.

It’s staying, it’s staying, how long will it loom?

Cry, cry for the love, the hurt, the pain.

It’s staying, it’s staying, the child takes the blame.

Cry, cry for the child, knowing the fate.

It’s leaving, it’s leaving, we find out too late.

Cry, cry for the child, the feeling, the loss.

It’s leaving, it’s leaving but a child, such a cost.

Wish for a rainbow, wish for a star;

As it takes them away and leaves with no scars!! …

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!
