Mother to Son . By : Langston Hughes Poem
1.Well son,I'll tell you
2.Life for me,ain't been no crying crystal stair
3.It's had tacks on it.
5.And boards torn up,
6.And place with no carpet on the floor
8.But all the time
9.I've been a climbin' on
10.And readin' landin's
11.And turning corners,
12.And sometimes go in the dark
13.Where ain't been no light
14.So,boy,don't you turn back
15.Don't you set down on the steps
16.Cause you finds its kinder hard
17.Don't you fall now.
18.For I see still goin',honey
19.I've still climbin'
20.And life for me,ain't been no crystal stair.
