"Pearl Inside" —Megan, 14

 

I’ve known Shannon since fourth grade
We’ve done lots of girls stuff together
She helps me go inside myself
I know we’ll be best friends forever

 

She’s like a sister
She’s like my ocean
When things get rough
She’s the water that lifts me up

 

She’s like a sister
In whom I confide
She’s the oyster that protects me
I’m the pearl inside

 

She visits me in the hospital
And raised money for my bills
She asks me questions about the doctor
And calls to see how I feel

 

She’s like a sister
She’s like my ocean
When things get rough
She’s the water that lifts me up

 

She’s like a sister
In whom I confide
She’s the oyster that protects me
I’m the pearl inside

 

She helps me deal with my problems
To talk through how I feel
Whenever I’m sad or scared, she’s there
Waiting to help me heal

 

She’s like a sister
She’s like my ocean
When things get rough
She’s the water that lifts me up

 

She’s like a sister
In whom I confide
She’s the oyster that protects me
I’m the pearl inside

 

She’s like a sister
She’s like my ocean
When things get rough
She’s the water that lifts me up

 

She’s like a sister
In whom I confide
She’s the oyster that protects me
I’m the pearl inside

 

I’m the pearl inside 
I’m the pearl inside 
I’m the pearl inside
I’m the pearl inside
