You know your sh*t -
But somehow you doubt
Maybe a so-called “expert”
Has summoned you out..
Or perhaps you’re young
And still yet unproven
And to challenge the gods
Is where  your heart
Is moving.


The bedrock sands in your field
Are constantly shifting
The cats in your herd
Are forever drifting.

What I’ve learned...

No single **** is going to know all -
If they claim to - they are lying.
Each and all of us in our trades..
Just our best we’re trying.

You won’t always win
But I can promise you this:
It’s way better to stand up..
And remember - you got this!
I’m a definite victim of imposter syndrome yet I still press on and fight when I think I’m right. It is terrifying but truly the only way to really live.
