My mom just kept quiet and did not respond…. I didn't even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was mad. I guess I felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to think that I had said what I'd wanted to say all this time. Maybe it was because my mom doesn't punish me, but I didn't think that I had hurt her feelings very badly. That night I saw my mother crying quietly, so that I was not disturbed. I took a look at her, and then turned away. Because of the thing I had said to her earlier, my whole heart was aching and felt like a two ton rock. Even so, I hated my mother because she only had one eye, who was crying. So I told myself that I would grow up and become successful because I hated my mother and the poverty we were in.

I was glad you came for the reunion but I decided not to go. Just for you, I think you are fed up of me and do not want to see me anymore. Any way I wouldn't have been able to come because I am so weak and am about to die. I am very sorry that you had to go through difficult times just because of my one eye.

You see… when you were born the doctors told your father and me that you wouldn't be able to live because you have a weak heart which is not strong enough to pump blood around your body. As parents, we couldn't let you die so your father sacrificed his heart and after one year you had an accident where you lost your eye so I sacrificed my eye to you.

I was shocked to see what my mom had done to me so I immediately ran to where my mom was living. There I saw people crying. I went there and people were staring at me. I knew what they were thinking about me. I kept quiet and prayed to my mom. I told her I was very sorry for what I did to her.

I was the last person to leave that place and after I went home, my wife and children were worried about me and asked where I had been. I told them the whole story and the letter. From then on every weekend we went to the cemetery to pray to my mom and give her respect for what she did to me.

One day I saw my mom saying hi to me and forgiving me for what I did. My heart was relived, after so many days of being haunted for what I did to my mom I couldn't sleep very well, but now I feel very peaceful so later I went back home. When I went back home I taught about when I saw my mom, then it came to me that I only saw my mother with my right eye, my mother's eye!
