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




The distortion you feel,

Interfering in a place-

That is not yours!

As an outcast to all surrounding,

You’re nothing as time passes,

And night falls,

You break down a little each day.

Soon you will be nothing;

Completely vanish.

Your presence is not even known-

As existing…


So who’s to say that they’d remember you.

Time will pass and you’ll be left behind;

For the sacrifice.

It is for the better.

Yet you feel-

As if you’ve already been to hell!

You’ll feel pain;

And sorrow too.

But they eventually go away;

And the blood drips in your eyes-

Are just tears of happiness>

Do you think?

Are you sure?

Or so you think!! …

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!"
