Bore from a secret affair
Kept from all those known there
Looked to as a freak with her luscious hair
And devilish evil blank stare

Beautiful whimsical creature
With the most astound feature
As she goes about on her own leisure
Through seriously frightening as an epileptic seizure

Daughter of honor, beauty, and intelligence
With an undeniable remembrance
And an unpredictable temperance
Yet done with the upmost elegance

A little girl with an unknown dad
Often teased by other small brats
Was reason to make her mad
As they treat her not better than rats

She is terribly smart
Being fast as a dart
As if she read her father’s name of a chart
He came to appreciate her as an art

The author's comments:
I was inspired by the character Pearl and created a poem for readers to better understand her life.
