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

Overcome by the rising tide: Hate;

And sucked under by undertow: Fear;

I caress the animal within me who bares-

my name on its tongue and devours me-

from the inside out..

But I know the beast that dwells-

in the halls of my soul is me!

So I find some comfort, no strangers…

Somebody save me!

A heroic deliverance from the blackened self,

So the wayfarer my nest his feet.

He’ll need them to run…

For somewhere in my darkest inner-sanctity-

waits a monster.

My name shaved into his hairy back.

He likes it here and wants to stay.

My soul begins to fly;

Like the dove from the ark, like the thunder from sky!

And soars away, far from here;

On the wings of angels, from hate and fate!! …

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!
