A Quiet Person

It is said that when a quiet person usually gets angry,
he is scared.

Although he is not used to anger,
he is unreasonably angry beyond his patience limit,
so he will be disappointed.

When my father got mad,
he quietly left the house,
went to a riverbed that was quite far away,
picked up a lot of the big stones
and did not roll or throw them,
he placed it gently on the floor of my room
and told me with a strange accent of the flipped voice.
“You, do not bother me.”

Yup. There certainly was scary things.
 


【 おとなしい人 】

普段おとなしい人が怒ると怖い、という。

怒り慣れてないくせに
我慢の限界を超えて無理に怒るものだから

つい羽目をはずしてしまうのだろう。

うちのお父さんが怒った時は

ひとりで黙って家を出て
かなり遠くにある川原まで行って
大きな石ころをいくつも拾ってきて

それを転がしも放り投げもせず
私の部屋の床にそっと並べるように置いて

裏返った声の変なアクセントで私に言ったのだ。
「おまえ、いい加減にしろよ」

うん。確かに怖いものはあった。
