A Lost Pearl

from by Cyril the Wolf

supported by


Pearl is a character from Steven Universe as well. She's defined mostly by the others around her. She does mature as the show goes on into a more independent persona but she's very co-dependent otherwise requiring to latch on to someone as a leader.


Can I live up to my own wild expectations
Be a perfect imprint of those whom I hold dear
Should I give up like I have been told to before
Be like others I know who are ruled by their fears

I'm not who I want to be
I'm Just a shadow following
Dancing behind the scenes
Holding the bad habits I'm borrowing
Please show me

Now that she's gone I'm lost with no light
Still I'm, defined, by another I've clung to


Yes I know that I can change
But old habits just don't fade away
Seems like it's code in my DNA
To let go of my self and simply obey
Don't you see, I'd move on if I could
But when I see a rose I breakdown inside
I may keep it in, but please believe me
I want nothing more than to be by her side


(I'm not who I want to be
I'm just a shadow following)
