The Story of a Mother and Child


My mom only had one eye. I hate it, it is a shameful thing. My mother runs a small shop in a market. He collects used goods and the like for sale, anything to get the money we needed. He is a shameful thing. One day at school. I remember it was the day when my mom came. I was very embarrassed. Why does he do this to me? I threw the face of hatred and ran. The next day at school .. "Your mom only has one eye?" And they all make fun of me.
I hope my mother is missing from this world so I said to my mother, "Mom, why do not you have the other eye? Mother would just be laughable. Why did you not die? "She did not answer. I feel a little bad, but at the same time, it feels so good that I have said what I wanted to say all along.
Maybe it's because the mother did not punish me, but I do not think that I had hurt her feelings. That night, I woke up and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. My mother cried there, quietly, as if he was afraid that he would wake me up. I saw it, and go. Because the words before him, there was something pinching my heart.
Even so, I hated my mother who was crying from one eye. So, I told myself if I was going to grow up and become successful, because I hated the one-eyed mother I and our poverty. Then I learned the hard way. I left my mother and to Seoul to study, and accepted in the Seoul University with all the confidence. Then, I got married. I bought my own house. Then I had kids too. Now, I'm living happily as a successful man. I love it here because this is a place that does not remind me of mom.
Happiness is becoming bigger and bigger, when someone unexpected encounter me "What?! Who is this? "... This is my mother .. still with one eye. It felt like the whole sky was falling into self-I. I run girls run away, afraid of my mother's eyes. And I asked him, "Who are you? I do not know you! "play me. I yelled at him "Why do you dare to come to my house and scare my son! Get out of here now! " And mother quietly answered, "Oh, I'm sorry. I must have the wrong address, "and she disappeared. Thank God .. He did not recognize me. I feel quite relieved. I told myself I was that I would not care, or think about this for the rest of my life.
Then there was a feeling of relief came to me .. One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. I lied to my wife saying that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went to the old me .. curiosity, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground. But I did not shed one tear though. He had a piece of paper in his hand .. and it is a letter to myself I was.

My Son

I think my life has been long enough now. And .. I will not visit Seoul again .. but is it just too much if I want you to come visit me once in a while, kid? I miss you so much. And I was so relieved when I heard you were coming to this reunion. But I decided not to come to school .. For You .. I apologize if I only have one eye, and I just brought the pubic for yourself.
You know, when you were very little, you are exposed to an accident, and lost one eye. As a mother, I can not stand to see you have to grow up with only one eye .. then I give you my eyes .. I'm very proud of my son who saw a new world for me, in my place, with that eye.
I was never mad at you for whatever you do. Some times when you are angry with me. I thought to myself, "It's because you love me." I miss the time when you were very small and were around me.


“I miss you so much. I love you. You are my world
