Mother to Son
Langston Hughes
3
Well, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair
4
It's had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor --
Bare.
5
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.
6
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.
