MY MOM TAUGHT ME.....

My Mom taught me to love with your whole heart,
and not be scared to get hurt.

My Mom taught me to look at a persons eyes,
not at the color of their skin.

My Mom taught me to laugh until you cry,
and to cry until you laugh.

My Mom taught me to work hard,
as nothing in life is free.

My Mom taught me to give a firm handshake,
and walk with your head held high.

My Mom taught me when things seem horrible,
they could always be worse.

My Mom taught me to respect animals,
and to respect people as well.

My Mom taught me we are all different,
that is what makes the world go round.

My Mom taught me to fight for what is right,
and to never back down.

My Mom taught me to turn the other cheek,
and apologize when you are wrong.

My Mom taught me that beauty is within,
as your looks will truly fade.

My Mom taught me if you don't have something nice to say,
you should say nothing at all.

My Mom taught me to love your man because you want him,
never because you need him.

My Mom taught me if I set my mind to it,
I can achieve anything in life.

My Mom taught me to have patience and be gentle,
with people who genuinely need it.

My Mom taught me that people make mistakes,
and it is OK to forgive them.

My Mom taught me to stand up for myself,
and it's OK to walk away.

My Mom taught me responsibility,
and to finish what I start.

My Mom taught me to be proud of who I am,
and to never look back.

But most of all,
My Mom taught me how to be a Mom.

Aw. That's sweet and so are you. I'll try to come up with a new poem sometime soon.

Well, you pretty much summed it up for me, too. Now what am I supposed to write about? Great job!
