The overall idea in the poem, Mother to Son, is that of perserverance; to never give up, to endure and push through life's ups and downs.
Mother to son is a monologue that conveys the idea of hope through simple imagery.The poem written by Langston Hughes tells us that life is not a bed of roses it has many tacks and splinters in the way of success and at times it is difficult to cope with them so we should never give up.
