I walk alone on this earthly trail.

Feeling so cold, as a baby so frail.

Ahead in the darkness, the stillness of the night,

A vision of perfection, silhouette in the light.

The moon ponders over this shadow of a man,

Laughing at the success of his plan.

Being unknowing pawn in the game,

I confront this stranger and ask his name.

To look into his eyes embraces my speech.

Our lips meet, our hearts both reach.

Standing together at dawn’s first light,

He whispers my name, my heart takes flight.

For the first time in centuries of war,

Someone has entered and unlocked the door.

The chain falls silent, at last I am free.

He speaks of love, of a life with me.

The sun rises, glowing its brightest hue,

To signify the rebirth, my life anew.

I have found my God and my heaven with you!! …

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!
