He slid his arms up around me, and as he kissed me back, I felt something inside me open, like a new life beginning. I didn't know yet what girl she'd be, or where this life would take her. But I'd keep my eyes open, and when the time came, I would know.
I've wasted a lot of time in my life. I've thought too much about what people will say or what they're gonna think. And sometimes it's over silly things like going to the grocery store or going to the post office. But there have been times when I really stopped myself from doing something special. All because I was scared someone might look at me and decide I wasn't good enough.
