I DID A PROJECT ON THIS!!! it was in 6th grade i made a really taterd
staircase and a mother and son on the stairs. it was pretty cool. I
really like this poem. Really shows how Life isnt al that and a box of
chocolates... but u must still go through with it and finish it because in
the end its not really bad.

I love this poem, my son is in prison and wants to give up on all hope. I
sent it to him and he called crying to thank me ! How wonderful the
internet is to give us an opportunity to find such great works. Take care
all of you. Peace and Life is good

This poem is what ever Mother wants for their son.
Life isn't a rose bed.It is up to you. Made all your dreams come
true.Things will get you down. But get back up and do sometime about it.

Someone asked about the crystal stairs. They represent the good life.
Crystal is expensive, shiney, pretty and smooth. The hard stairs with bare
boards, tacks and darkness represents the harder life. Symbolism I
guess....don't quote my literary terms!
