DLTK's Poems
Mother to Son

by Langston Hughes

Well, son, Iíll tell you:
Life for me ainít been no crystal stair.
Itís had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the flooró
Bare.
But all the time
Iíse been a-climbiní on,
And reachiní landinís,
And turniní corners,
And sometimes goiní in the dark
Where there ainít been no light.
So boy, donít you turn back.
Donít you set down on the steps
íCause you finds itís kinder hard.
Donít you fall nowó
For Iíse still goiní, honey,
Iíse still climbiní,
And life for me ainít been no crystal stair.
