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

“TO RISK”

Life is a risk.

To try is to risk failure.

To reach out is to risk involvement

To love is to risk not being loved in return…

To be honest is to risk showing your true self.

To be an individual is to risk standing out!

To learn is to risk wisdom.

The greatest risk is to risk nothing.

For the woman with nothing to lose,

Has nothing to gain!! …

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!
