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

“WE ARE THE WORLD”

… I am the world!

I see the world;

the world through my window.

I look at the world,

but don’t understand-

why is the world, the world?

… We are the world!

We see the world;

the world through our windows.

But why cant’t we see what-

we must be, and why must we be

The world?

… You are the world!

You see the world,

the world through your window.

But why, I must ask, can’t you know-

that the world is you and we and I?

You still not change the world you see,

although the world is you, we, and me?? …

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!
