*******

Inside this body lives a girl

To me she is my hidden pearl.

Past the wrinkles of my skin

I have wings that spread within.

Past these old and achy bones

Abides a place of hearth and home.

I have riches, I've a pearl;

Inside this body lives a girl.

You may not know me intimately,

But I still see myself as she.

If you could see beyond my face

You too would see her in my place.

I've got riches, I've a pearl;

Inside this body lives a girl.

*******
