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




If I could show you through my eyes,

my tears would paint you.

A picture with a whirlwind of blue,

if, for a day, you could see life-

through my blurred vision.

Your black and white world would cry in radiant hues-

if only I could open your eyes to the world I live in!

You would no longer be blinded by false dreams.


If you saw the world through me,

the world would be no more-

fairy tales, rainbows and magical golden sunbeams!

If only I could show you what it is like to be chained-

to endless fear and pain.

If, just once you could know-

what it is like to never hold sunshine,

to only catch rain.

But, instead, you look through ignorant eyes,

and wonder why I lay in silence-

with tears poring from my-

cloudy eyes!! …

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!"
