Master of the Universe...

You can tell him nothing.
He knows it all.
He's certain he's wiser,
that he can't fall.

You can point out the obvious,
but he won't see;
he's too worried about the eyes on him,
and being what they want him to be.

You can tell him you've been there
but the knowledge won't sink in,
because your life was so different--
way back then.

You can warn him about heartache
and about playing the fool,
but he can't hear you;
he's too busy acting cool.

There's nothing you can possibly know
that he hasn't done or seen.
He's the master of the universe
though he's only fifteen.

"Master of the Universe," written and designed by Bobette Bryan, 2001
