Mother to Son by Langston HughesWell, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.
It's had tacks in it,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor
But all the time
I'se been a-climbin' on,
And reachin' landin's,
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 kinder 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.
I just have to post this poem by Langston Hughes. I have never ever read anything of his before and this is beautiful. A very apt addition to Mother's Day. I know it's almost over in the Northern Hemisphere and I hope it has blessed every Mom with love.
