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

I cry alone,

yet not for me are the tears I shed;

but for those whose hope has faded,

to be abandoned in life, in torment to fear.

To be condemned for, they don’t conform.

To be abused, to have dreams forlorn.

To be deemed unfit for others tastes.


To be left alone because there is fear,

a fear so misplaced that it should not be there.

I long to embrace them who call,

who cry for help or for love.

Those who must die alone, suffer from life,

or can not go home.

At last I cry alone for America,

yet not for me, but what happened to her!! …





Author: elliebelfiglio

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!
