Self Talk

I had a doubt
said it aloud
to hear how the words
sounded in my ears.

Just as crappy
as I thought them
the jeering call
You’re such a fraud.

So I visited my
résumé
in the tiny section
allotted for the credited
writing I’ve done.

This to remind myself
I’m not the only one
who thinks my words
are good for someone
other than just me.
