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




In the world there may seven wonders be

But the wonders on my life are as endless as see.

The mysteries of life and death and even in between

Broken hearts and tragedies are all my life has seen.

I marvel at the ways people seem to live their lives

Children crying in the streets, husbands beat their wives.

Coping is a tricky thing though I really don’t know why

Everyone seems to hang their heads and heave a heavy sigh.

Why must the world be so deceitful, mean and cruel?

These to me, resemble the behavior of a fool.

If life is a rose – the essence of of beauty all

Then I was pricked too many times before I let it fall.

When Shakespeare wrote his piece on life, he must have felt its sting,

He said, “A tale full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”!!! …

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!"
