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




… Just when I think I’ve been at this for so long

And it’s driving me ’round the bend’

When they say- “a change is as good as a holiday…”

Along comes a second wind.

… Just when I think I’m all alone

And I indulge in foolish pride

The words comes loud and clear

“Get your sorry self outta here;

Along comes my second wind.

… My second wind, He made me into who I am today

He knows me better than I know myself.

He’s the truth, the life, the way…

… My second wind He saved me from who I am today.

He loves me even when I hate myself.

Ask Him to take your sins away.

… My second wind – closer than a friend

The bottom line – He rose again!

… My second wind is as refreshing as a cold drink on a hot day.

Dig deep and take a sip. Util you want to say…

… My second wind!! …

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!"
