This story is related to 1 Boy and his Mother
My mother had only one eye,
I hated her as I was ashamed of her
She was a cook in the school cafeteria where I studied.
One day, when I saw still in a primary class,
She came to visit me to see for herself that I was all right.
I was very upset, how dare she do this to me?
After that incident I ignored her & looked on her
Only with hateful eyes….
The next day, a fellow-student told me,
“oohhh, your mother has only one eye!”
At that moment, I wanted to crawl under the floor
And that my mother would be out of my life completely.
The next day I went to meet her & to tell here:
“ because of you I am the joke at school,
Why don’t you die and go away!?
But, she did not respond….
I wasn’t thinking and did not know what I was saying,
I was very angry.
I could not imagine
How she would react to my remarks.
And, I left town.
I studied relentlessly and obtained a scholarship
to continue my studies abroad.
In fact, I completed my studies, got married, bought a house and set up my family.
I lived a happy and a peaceful life.
One day, my mother comes to visit me.
It has been many years since she had disappeared,
She had never met here grand-children.
She remained at the doorstep
While my children were making fun of her
I shouted at her: “ How date you come all the way here and frighten my kids?!
With a calm voice she responded:
“I apologize, I am at the wrong address.”
And she disappeared.
One day, I received an invitation from my hometown school to attend a reunion under the “ close family ties “ topic
I lied to my wife and made her believe that
I was traveling for business.
After the reunion I stopped by the house
where I grew up
The neighbours informed me that
my mother had passed away.
I did not shed even one drop of tear!!!
The neighbor handed me a letter
that my mother had left for me
“My Dear son, I always thought of you.”
I regret having visited you abroad
And frightened your kids
…I was very pleased when I heard that
you would come to attend the reunion
…The only thing was that I could not get up
from my bed to come and see you….
…I am broken-hearted that I brought
shame to you on numerous occasions…
…Did you know that when you were a baby
you had an accident and lost your one eye?...
… and, as any other mother would,
I would not let you grow up with only one eye….
So. I gave you my eye……..
I was very proud and happy to know that my son would be able to see the world with my eye
… with all my love…
