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

… “Who are you?” A friend once asked.

As sad as I was, I had no reply,

Because THE ME IN ME was afraid to

Discover the ME IN ME that refused

To be…


… “Who am I? ” Ask the ones who probably know best!

Mom, because she “RAISED” me;

Dad, because he “MADE” me;

Husband, because he “CHANGED” me…


… I am a mother- yes- absolutely, all consuming,

Unequivocally, so fulfilled, but incomplete in that

role alone.

… “WHO AM I?” As sad as it is, I have

No reply, because the ME IN ME is still

Afraid to discover the ME IN ME that

Doesn’t know how to be free!! …

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!
