Translation reads: "I was eighteen, sent to a military correctional regiment because of a crime I committed. Mother was in tears when I went home to see her during my leave of absence. Father told me to leave but Mother wanted me to stay. I am her flesh and blood. How could she let me go? In the chilly wind, she sent me back to the regiment in tears.  I could not sleep when I was back to the regiment, missing my hometown and my folks back home, thinking of Father and Mother. After staying behind bars for seven to eight years, I served the full term and went home. By then, Mother  was all gray-headed and my wife had already run away with another manů" Translated by Eleanor Yuen.
