The Queen in Me

I am a Queen,
From the kingdom of me,
My skin speaks a story of me,
Me is the preciouse pearl you have never seen,
Me is the pure blood of humanity,

The humanity we forgot,
I am simply me,
Although, sometimes I detest
A jungle filled with creatures,

I do not understand,
I live behind a sound proof wall,
Their words are different,
Their sounds are grating,

I chose not to rule them,
A queen with no kingdom,
The queen of my own humanity.
