One day my mother said to me, " you are out of tune."
After that I was no longer able to sing.
However hard I tried, I couldn't produce a voice.
I had no trouble in speaking, but the problem cropped up once I tried to sing.
I felt my voice stuck in my throat.
The hardest time was music class at school.
I pretended to be singing by opening and moving my mouth at first.
But later I felt the teacher would fing out sooner or later that I wasn't singing, so I stopped pretending.
Then I just kept my mouth closed.
It seemed to offend him.
He gave me F on my report card at last.
Even after I graduated from schools, I sometimes fell into the situation where I had to sing.
I was at a loss.
So and so about 40 years had passed
