Mother to Son

Mother to Son

 

Well, son, I”ll tell you:

Life for me ain’t been on crystal stair.

It’s had tacks in it,

And Splinters,

And boards torn up,

And places with no carpet on the floor-

Bare.

But all the time

I’se been a-climbin’ on,

And reaching’ landins,

And turnin’ corners,

And sometimes goin’ in the dark

Where there ain’t been no light.

So, boy, don’t you turn back.

Don’t you set down on the steps.

‘Cause you finds it’s kinda hard.

Don’t you fall now----

For I’se still going, honey,

I’se still climbin,

And Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.

Langston Hughes

Thank you, I think it's a poem true to it's words. And that day, that's how I was feeling, dealing with my 2 sons and their issues.
So, I decided to post it.
