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
Puts on my running shoes
Laces them tight
Chases me from my seat
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
