Response to Langston Hughes "Mother to Son"

So Ma,
Im sorry your life
ain't been no crystal stair
and i'm sorry that mine might never be
but i do know one thing, Ma.
I ain't never gonna stop climbin'
not 'tell my feet burn, and my heart
beats cold.
So Ma,
You'll climb along with me, wont you?
you won't leave me alone in the dark.
You'll keep climbin' Ma
even if you ain't climbin'
no, crystal stair.
