"Reading's a very important skill. I remember Dad telling me and Kayte stories, about how in really old times, people who didn't know how to read were usually the poor. Being able to read is a wealth in its own right." He picked up another book and winced as part of the spine came away. "Oh, dear."
"It's alright, that one's mine." She took it; it was an old, old medical text that was very worn away. "I'll get it fixed."
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!
