    • POEM: Mother To Son by Langston Hughes (2/1/2007 8:43:00 PM)

      This poem brings me back to when I was a teen. I was made to memorize it. I made the mistake of bringing it home and read it to my mom. Oh boy. Little did I know that my mother had memorized it, and whenever my brother and I got into trouble, or whenever our day was a complete and utter disaster, my mom would recite this poem to us. Somehow she worked it into her own lecture. She breathed new life into this poem. I believe that if Langston Hughes had heard her recite it the way she did he would say 'Damn, I wrote that? '
