MOTHER TO SON
By James Langston Hughes (1902-1967)
Abdullah Odeh
Well, son, I’ll tell you:
Life for me ain’t been no 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 climbin’ on,
and reachin’ landin’s
And turnin’ corners
And sometimes goin’ in the dark
Where their ain’t be no light
So, boy don’t you turn your back,
don’t you set down your steps, ‘cause you
finds it 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
