Poem on the bathroom wall - My Mother Says

My little brother got to talk in church last week and called to see if I remembered the poem that Momma had hanging in the bathroom.  I don't know how old I was when she hung it up, I just always remember it being there. (I think Grandma gave it to her) I'm now 33 and can still quote it all!
  Maybe I should hang it up for my kids to read while they're "just sittin' there!"

My Mother Says

My mother says she doesn't care
About the color of my hair,
Or if my eyes are blue or brown,
Or if my nose turns up or down.
My mother says these things don't matter.

My mother says she doesn't care
If I'm dark or if I'm fair,
If I'm thin or if I'm fat.
She doesn't fret o'er things like that.
My mother says these things don't matter.

But if I cheat or tell a lie,
Or do mean things to make folks cry,
Or if I'm rude or impolite,
And do not try to do what's right...
Then that's what really matters.

It isn't looks that makes one great;
It's character that seals our fate.
It's what's within our hearts, you see,
That makes or mars our destiny.
And that's what really matters.
