they think I hide
to conceal my beauty
to protect my precious
for nobody to look at
but the one
if only they knew
that my pearl needs no hiding
for hungry eyes
who cannot stop staring
because of its glistening elegance
I tightly close my shell
for no one to know
how burning eyes
a churning stomach
feel like
for no one to see
what real ugly looks like
