Know-It-All
 
 
The little girl of 6 years old
She thinks she knows it all
She picked up everything she needs
When starting school last fall
 
The young girl at 11 years
She thinks she knows it all
She makes a scornful/wistful face
When given a new doll
 
The young woman at Sweet 16
She thinks she knows it all
She's "not a kid" she tells her mom
When curfews are installed
 
The woman 21 years old
She thinks she knows it all
She's just starting out on her own
And answering work's call
 
The older woman frail and tired
As many years have turned
She realizes now that she
Still has a lot to learn
