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

… I have been a prisoner of my pride;

and a prisoner of what people decide;

and what they say, what they side;

and I don’t know when I put all these aside…

… If a day comes that I’ll be strong and brave-

I can dance to the music, I don’t behave.

Then I rescue me from the jail keeper of grave-

which is in fact me in rage of rave…


… I often feel a progress, a break.

My wondrous soul and I fight the ache.

We know what we want, so we shake.

Frightened of my soul, I quake…

… But they all say I am a fighter like blaze.

I am tired of listening, so I amaze.

Then I speak and loudly raise-

my voice to break the shell, the vase…

… Is it too late for me to grow?

I passed many crises and woe!

But will I take the growth and new show?

Yes, I will, to just see the rainbow!! …

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!
