Going Mad in China

by Yupin K

I am a short Chinese boy and I am afraid of my parents. They are very strict with me. When I studied in primary school,I did badly in my studies. I often failed in my test, I was so frightened to be punished, but I never have courage to hide my paper. Every time I make mistake they always take me to the yard and give me a Chinese style spanking. It was hurt and embarrassing because three of my neighbors' children were my classmates. After being spanked, I had to kneel on the yard to "reflect on myself", and the children always play tricks on me. What's worse, they talk about the embarrassing scene in the classroom. I was laughed at by all of my classmates. So when I finally came to high school, I became self-abased.

I don't want to talk to everyone. My parents would never know how they changed me. I don't want to talk back about the dark childhood either. The pain, sore knees and laughter from my classmates would never be forgotten. That makes me almost go mad.
