Ain't No Crystal Stair
In the poem, Mother to son By: LANGSTON HUGHES there was a mother who had a hard life.

  • She stated, "Well, son, I'll tell you: Life for me ain't been no crystal stair. It's had tacks in it, and splinters, and boards torn up, and places with no carpet on the floor-bare."

In the end of the poem, the mother says to the son, "Don't you set down on the steps 'Cause you finds it's kinda hard. Don't you fall now- For I'se still goin', honey, I'se still climbin', And life for me ain't been no crystal stair." It indicates that her life hasn't been easy but she's kept hope. She kept fighting even though it got tough and she want's her son to take her advise and never give up. She want's her son to do the same, for she is wise now. She wants him to fight even in the worst times and no matter how hard it gets to never stop and never let that get in the way for what matters or what he want's in life, and if he's ever in a terrible situation where he's close to homeless to keep on fighting and things will turn up, for she is still going.
