Faking It, Or Making It
The imposter can speak with authority
having read and studied and listened and written,
learned how to charm and smile at a roomful,
turning metaphoric cartwheels if necessary
to generate approval.
The imposter lies awake many nights
having seen and heard and felt and suffered,
learned that deep inside is dishonesty
turning spasmodically in the brain
to generate unworthiness.
Is being an imposter real or imagined,
And will they all ever find out?
