Am I an Imposter?

The voice of doubt speaks again, am I enough

Do I really know all this stuff

Did I just get lucky, or is it true

That I’m actually competent enough to do

Everything that I’m perceived as capable of doing

Why are there in my mind doubts brewing

About my capability- is it because I carry the burden

Of reasonable or unreasonable expectation

Is it a function simply of my youth (and lack of experience)

Sometimes these feelings of inadequacy are intense..


I have been working to reduce

This imposter syndrome which tends to produce

Doubts in my mind about my abilities

When a doubt arises I just seize

That feeling and toss it away

Thus keeping the imposter syndrome at bay

Quite honestly, it is a work in progress

But at least I’m able to enjoy my success

Without feeling like a fraud

At least my achievements I can applaud
