I see you

I couldn’t put my finger on it before

I mistook it
at first for an attractive confidence and then for ignorant arrogance

But I believe you’re worst fear, a fear so deep that the burying of it has created your very persona

You’re absolute worst nightmare is to start questioning yourself
To find doubt in your bones
The realization that this facade, while attractive, it nothing more than a projection you’ve created

Deep down you know
You know that once the doubt creeps in
You will never get it out.
