My scent is overwhelming
I can be seen when someone faces me with fear in their eyes
My presence can be clearly detected
I’m implanted within a few
My victims live in terror
I can control others with my mere presence
I’m lurking behind each opportunity, yet my responsibility embraces all in my view
My prey is your mistake
I am your parent explaining to you your misdeeds
Ready to pounce like a lion on my prey, your errors
Bullies cower in fear when I arrive
I am authority
Never forget, I hover above you, all the time, everywhere,
You don’t want to be caught in my wrath

 I've written poems that give off the same vibe as this one, so I guess it's true what they say about great minds thinking alike. :)

Nice! :) I love how you started off with "my scent" it's a bit odd because it's a poem about authority but thats what I like about it. :)
