Two Worlds Colliding

                                                  teenage rebellion --
                                                potent emotions soar
                                                 hormones run amuck

                                             parents know what's best
                                             safe, moral boundaries set --
                                                     let the war begin

    yes the young think they are entitled, but they eventually know it all, being young is great, but it soon gets late, if you survive the brawl...
