"It's hardly from birth." Kris frowned. "When you're old enough, you take tests to find out your aptitudes, your skills. If something were to happen between point A and point B where your hobbies change or you wind up stuck in a trade you dislike, that happens. It's incredible difficult to gauge what a child will be able to do when they're an adult, I agree on that issue, but if we were to let them decide at the cusp of adulthood, we'd wind up with a bunch of kids with their thumbs up their ass."

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!
