my english teacher gave it out to our class to read, learn and enjoy it.

I am a mother to a son, I do not have words to describe the magnitude of
the love I feel for him. He is 15 years old now and the teen age years have
brought some distance between us. I e-mailed Langston Hughs' poem to him,
it is my hope that it will touch his heart. This beautiful poem is the
closest I can get to conveying the immense emotion I feel toward my beloved
son.

This poem and others Lnagston Hughes has written are beyond beautiful. His
poetry and plays are terrific. I love Mother to Son. I first read Mother to
Son years ago and I heard about Langston Hughes years ago and his writing
still inspires me to this day.

I went on this site for my english homework but got so much more! When I
read this poem I fell deeply in love with it! It has so much meaning to
everyone; NEVER GIVE UP WHEN SOMETHING IS HARD, BECAUSE OTHERS HAVE BEEN
THROUGH SO MUCH MORE! So I want to personally thank Mr. Sharp(my english
teacher) for coming up with this assignment! Thank-you Mr. Sharp!

This poem is about an experience an evidence of a mother for her children
and a fight for one's life.

This is a great poem. We recently moved and at my last school we were
studying poetry. My group had to stand up and read a poem, and this was
it. Every time I read this, I hear my friends.
