This founded poem was about a short story that I have just read called “Thank You Ma’m” by Langston Hughes. The story tells a story about a boy was trying to steal a rich women’s purse. The purse was too heavy for the boy so he tripped over, the women ask the boy why the boy stole his purse, the boy said that he wants to buy food to eat, the women said that I will bring you home and give you some food to eat, here is the place where the internal conflict come in, the women choose to bring a stranger who wants to stole her purse home, she choose to be kind.. When they have arrived the women’s house the women give some food to the boy and let him take a shower. She told the boy, when I was young, I want things that I couldn’t get, but I never stole other people’s stuff. At the end of the story, the boy was grateful, and he said Thank you Ma’m in his mind。
