A D-Xirable Poet! Langston Hughes

A picture of a beautiful staircase!

I decided to post one of my favorite poems by Langston Hughes, "Mother to Son". Basically, this poem is about life not being perfect. It means that we all have problems and hardships through out life and even though we do, we should choose to keep going and not to give up.

A picture of the beautiful staircase in the Swarovski Store in Tokyo!

Mother to Son

Well, son, I'll tell you:
The poet himself, Langston Hughes.
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 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.

Langston Hughes

I hope that you enjoyed reading this!

Love always,
