THAT POEM REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART. IT SHOWED THE PAIN THAT MANY BLACK
POEPLE HAD TO SUFFER, YET NEVER GAVE UP. I AM REALLY INSPIRED BY THE POEM
BECAUSE IT MAKES ME WANT TO CONTINUE THIS JOURNEY THAT I HAVE BEGUN, AND
MAKE MY ANCESTORS PROUD BY LETTING THEM KNOW THAT THEIR SUFFERING DID NOT
GO UNNOTICED. SOMETHING AS DEEP AS THE NEGRO MOTHER CAN NEVER BE CONSIDERED
SHALLOW!

This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read and the most
beautiful i ever recited. i recited it at my church during our womans day
program, but then I couldn't find it anymore until now. I just LOVE this
poem an now that I HAVE FOUND IT, believe me it will not get misplaced
again.On my wall it goes until my grandchildren are old enough to
understand.

I'm a Mexican, but grew up loving and looking up to black people. Langston
is one of the African-Americans I respect the most. In his poems, he just
speaks and writes with his heart. That is what makes his poems touch the
strings of your heart.

This poems holds true the strength of the black women. The sacrafices she
will endure to give to her children what they desreve it is and should be a
guideline for young women to say to them that the struggle may be long put
the outcome is worth the wait if you do your best with your children that
although some of your dreams may have been delayed you can find pleasure in
watching your children make theirs come true

this poem is real deep. I feel like he wrote that just for me. it shows how
black woman suffered to get were they are at today. i still feel that we
are not getting all the respect that we should.but we will get sooner or
later.
God bless you Langston Hughes

This poem was one that really touched me. Being African American it is a
struggle and Mr. Hughes' poem shows this. We should honor his work and keep
trying for a better tomorrow
