The reason I love the poem called mother to son is because it is actually speaking the truth about motherhood and its sacrifices. You see, mothers while they enjoy being mothers, need to sacrifice a lot of things. They prefer to hurt themselves then to hurt their children and always do their best to put their children first. We all know that. But do we ever think about what the mother is leaving behind, what she is giving up just to make the child's life more enjoyable?
Just the fact that someone would write about this means that they actually care about what they gave up.
Their isn't a crystal star for the mothers. They get no rewards, they just give everything up to see us happy. They no longer have the opportunity to have their crystal stars. They need to be appreciated more often for what they do.
