By Jonathan Srock

I control them all.
The creation controls its creator;
Without me they are nothing
But without them I don't exist.

Every aspect of their lives,
From morning to evening.
I am their only hope
Without me their world would crash.

You wake up when I tell you
You sleep when I say so.
Go to school; go to work.
Be late; be early.
I control it all.

I am the one you wake up to.
I am the last you see before sleep.
You abuse me and use me
But I alone control your life.
