"Mother To Son "by: Langston hughes
The poem is about how the mom went through a lot in her life and tells her son to be strong. The mom is telling her son that life is not easy and that she does a lot of work. She says that her life is not like a crystal stair but she keeps on climbing. There is extended metaphor and imagery. They show how difficult it is and she a hard worker. A struggled passed down threw generations.
