Mother to Son
By : Langston Hughes
"There are always ups and downs, but you have to take what life throws at you and push through it"
In this short poem a kids mother states that her life hasn't been no crystal stair. However she still climbs on, reaching landings, turning corners, and continues in the dark when their is not light found. The mother tells the boy to not turn back and not fall, life has never been easy for her.Life will be hard, but don't go back down. " For I'se still goin', honey , I'se still climbin', And life for me ain't been no crystal clear." This poem was an amazing example on how you will have challenges in life, but you have to overcome them.
