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

True Exposure

1 Comment


Around me, the darkness falls,

Like a blanket, I wrap me in it;

And play with time.

Fades away the last light;

Prepares me to journey within myself;

A kaleidoscope of fear and hope;

Appears in rotating images in intervals.

I will never be more aware-

than I am now! Let me think,

Where is my home in the passing show of my dreams?

Suspending myself- and pulse-

a  lengthly time/ who am I, who could I be?

In none true exposure- snapped!

Ahh ahh! A righteous unconscious,

As away existence!

And then I become what I already am,


Conversely, a destiny, a strong sense reaches out;

And touches my soul,

And lifts me back to surface of life!!

I think again! As I approach the light.

A rude awakening this morning-

like all others!

The feeling remains!

Can I write my name across the time?? …

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!"
