My mom only had one eye. I hated
her… She was such an
embarrassment. She cooked for
students and teachers to support the
There was this one day during
elementary school where my mom
came to say hello to me. I was so
How could she do this to me? I
ignored her, threw her a hateful look
and ran out. The next day at school
one of my classmates said, ‘EEEE, your
mom only has one eye!’
I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted
my mom to just disappear. I
confronted her that day and said, "If
you’re only gonna make me a
laughing stock, why don't you just
My mom did not respond… I didn’t
even stop to think for a second about
what I had said, because I was full of
anger. I was oblivious to her feelings.
I wanted out of that house, and have
nothing to do with her. So I studied
real hard, got a chance to go abroad
to study.
Then, I got married. I bought a house
of my own. I had kids of my own. I
was happy with my life, my kids and
the comforts. Then one day, my
Mother came to visit me. She hadn’t
seen me in years and she didn’t even
meet her grandchildren.
When she stood by the door,
my children laughed at her, and I yelled at
her for coming over uninvited. I
screamed at her, "How dare you come
to my house and scare my children!
And to this, my mother quietly
answered, "Oh, I’m so sorry. I may
have gotten the wrong address," and
she disappeared out of sight.

reunion came to my house. So I lied
to my wife that I was going on a
business trip. After the reunion, I
went to the old shack just out of
My neighbors said that she died. I did
not shed a single tear. They handed
me a letter that she had wanted me to
"My dearest son,
I think of you all the time. I’m sorry
that I came to your house and scared
your children.
I was so glad when I heard you were
coming for the reunion. But I may not
be able to even get out of bed to see
you. I’m sorry that I was a constant
embarrassment to you when you were
growing up.
You see……..when you were very little,
you got into an accident, and lost your
eye. As a mother, I couldn’t stand
watching you having to grow up with
one eye. So I gave you mine.
I was so proud of my son who was
seeing a whole new world for me, in
my place, with that eye.
With all my love to you,
Your mother."

the son got into tears, but it was too late.
