Kiani, at ten, boys have something called cooties. I don't care where you live, a majority of the world's ten year old girls believe boys have cooties. Nobody DATE-DATES at ten. There's a thing as play-dates, but those are just that - PLAY dates, for PLAYING. Not actual dates. Actual dating starts in high school or late middle school.
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
