I recited this poem to my daughter and other high school grads. I
encouraged them to keep climbing.

I really like this poem. I enjoy talking to my children about life lessons
and then adding this poem at the end of our conversation.

Mother to Son - Langston Hughes

I lay awake early this morning dealing with a major problem in my life, as
tears streamed down my face, the words to this poem came to mind. I could
not believe how much of the poem I remembered. It lifted my burdens and I
wanted to share it with my other friends who were dealing with the same
problem. Thank you God for allowing Langston Hughes to write such a simple
yet timeless, nurturing poem.

I dislike

I have chosen this poem as my supplementary text analysis on belonging. I
find it is quite difficult to find good official poetry that fits to the
context of belonging. This poem irritates me. First of all it has almost no
rhyme and rhythmn and it only includes techniques such as symbolism and
emotive language. Any suggestions for other poems would be extremely
helpful, or other techniques and innovative ways I could approach this
poem. This homework task is a real struggle for me, I have completed the
task but feels like its missing the depth and central message. I cant find
anything more than Parental message for their children to have the
motivation and determination to get themselves through life in the best
possible ways. Please help, thanks,
Brooke
