Bring Me Back

If you should encounter
An unoccupied chair
Find me
And drag me back
To the desk of an author
The job of a writer and poet
My calling
My meaning
My happy place
Because sometimes…
Sometimes I forget
Fear
Puts on my running shoes
Laces them tight
Chases me from my seat
Afraid
Of not being good enough
Imposter syndrome
Overwhelmed by lack
Of experience
Of qualification
Of a voice
And I still trip
Over self-doubt
Over my own feet
Over myself
Remind me
That it’s okay
As long as I come back
