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

The Me In Me



“Who are you?” A friend once asked.

Sad as it was, I had no reply;

Because the me in me was afraid to-

discover  the me in me that refused-

to be…

“Who am I?” Ask the ones who probably know best!

Mom, because she “raised me”, dad, because he

“Made me”, Husband, because he “changed me”!

I am mother- yes- absolutely, all- consuming,

Unequivocally, so fulfilled, but incomplete in that-

role alone!

“who am I?” As sad as it is, I have-

no reply, because the me in me that-

doesn’t know how to be free!! …

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!"

  1. If we have discovered the me in me, we are in our path to nirvana.

Let everybody be nice!
