My mom would be at all my sporting events.
Let’s say I was playing football, ok?
My mother would be on the sidelines
and if the play on the field would start going one way,
my mother would start
“麦克 打败他们 打败他们”
going like “MIKE, GET EM! GET EM!”
And I’d be like, “Oh, my gosh.”
I’d get in a huddle with the other guys,
they’d go, “Mark, is that your mother?”
I’d go, “No, I never saw her before in my life.”
See, the greatest gift my mother ever gave me?
– she believed in me.
I have overdosed on drugs on 3 occasions where
I should have been dead.
But I believe I was kept here for a reason.
You show me your friends, I will show you your future.
How do I know this?
I hung out with losers, and I became the
biggest loser of them all
because I gave up everything I dreamt about as a little
boy because of who I chose to surround myself with.
我的朋友会在早上2点 3点 4点
My friends would drive me home at around
2, 3, 4 in the morning.
我们会喝醉 喝高 在车里大笑
We’d be drunk and high, laughing in the car.
We’d pull up in front of my house
他们会叫“马克 马克 你家灯还亮着”
and they’d go, “Mark, Mark.The lights on.”
I’d go, “Oh man, my mother’s up.”
See, my mom wouldn’t go to bed
until she knew her son was still alive.
我走进屋 妈妈说“嗨 马克 今晚过得怎么样？”
I’d walk in she’d say, “Hi Mark,how was your night?”
I’d go, “It was good Mom,
“Can I talk to you for a minute?”
我说“妈妈 我很累 只想去睡”
I go “Mom, I’m tired! I’m just gonna go to bed.”
她会说“马克 我整天整天地见不到你 请你跟我说说话好吗”
She goes, “Mark. I haven’t seen you all day and all night. Can I please talk to you.”
I says, “Man, just leave me alone.
You bug me.”
I’d slam my bedroomdoor.
On the one person who believed in me.
I was on a world wide tour when we were wrestling overseas in Japan.
After my wrestling match I went upstairs
in my hotel room and I fell asleep.
There was a knock at my door at 3 o’clock in the morning.
I got out of bed
and looked through the safety window and I could see,
it was a Japanese promoter.
所以我打开门 他说“马克 你得往家里打个电话
So I opened the door and hesays, “Mark, you need to call home.
There’s been an emergency.”
I went and got on the hotel phone and I called back to the United States and I says,
“Hey, what’s going on?”
He said, “Mark, I don’t know how to tell you this.”
I said, “Just tell me, what happened?”
I almost started crying and they go, “Mark, I can’t tell you.”
I said, “Just say it.”
“Mark. Your mother died.”
I just threw the phone down.
I ran out of my hotel room. I took the
elevator to the lobby and when the doors opened up,
I just ran down to the street.
I mean, there was no cars, there was no peoples.
3 o’clock in the morning.
I walked down to the middle of the street
in Hiroshima, Japan
and I remember looking up and just saying, “Mom. I amso sorry.”
I flew home for her funeral,
and I was so nervous to
walk up to her casket so I just stood way in the back.
And I kept looking from adistance, thinking to myself, Mom,
please wake up.
Please get up.
And then I finally got the nerve to walk up to her.
And as I got closer,
I could see my mom for the first time.
she was so beautiful.
She was dressed in white.
I mean, she looked like an angel.
And I just stood over her and I said,
“Mom. You are my hero. Everything
I am and everything I hope to be was because of you.
You loved me so much
you gave me a life.
You’re the only onethat ever believed in me.”
How’d I repay her?
By getting drunk, by getting high,
by getting stupid, by hanging out
with losers. For what?
All she ever wanted to do, was talk to me.
I wish I could talk to you now, mom.
I wish you could see what I’m doing.
Why couldn’t I have been a better son?
We are defined by our choices.
但是如果你和一帮吸毒 酗酒 嗑药的人鬼混
But if you surround yourself by people involved with drugs and alcohol
and pills. It’s a dead end.
I’m not hereto preach to ya.
I’m here to tell you
I lived that life.
它只会让人心碎 使爱情破裂 使梦想破碎
It leads to brokenhearts, broken relationships, broken
dreams and death.
To get high?
If you have a mother or a father
when you go home, tell’em how much you love’em.
See, my whole life was about
being rich and famous.
I had to be a millionaire.
I had to win the race.
以我的婚姻 家庭 朋友为代价
I had to win the race at the expense
of my marriage, my family, my friends.
For what? To be all alone in the world?
I learned what is truly important.
And that is, how precious this gift
of life is, and our families,
and how quickly it can be taken away.
I now longer live in time, I live in themoment.
See, it’s not what’s in your
pocket that matters. It’s what’s in yourheart that truly matters.
Love. Love is just a word.
Until somebody comes along and gives it meaning.
You. You’re the meaning.
