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

“MY OTHER SELF IS GONE”

girlcrying… Years have gone by.

Something is so wrong.

The only way I can laugh,

Is to cry first.

Sometimes I even sing;

Until the doorbell does ring!

Other times, I play tricks,

Play games, or tease;

Or call someone a silly name!

My other self, forever is gone…

cropped-cropped-holi_025… The occasions are there;

But does anyone care?

I see nothing funny.

I can’t even smile like dummy,

Not even once in awhile.

I am so alone, just me, the only one,

Who faces day after day,

In the old same way…

6524009433_3aab0d352a_z… I think about what to eat…

I even adjust the heat…

I pick up the mail…

And drink ginger ale…

I even watch TV;

But I can never see!

Always be,

Just me…

But not the me,

That used to be!

Where did I go?? ..

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!"
