I Love a Good Self Sabotage

Imposter syndrome is one of the many ironies of life.

Despite my protests in therapy, I must love a good self-sabotage

since no matter what I do any success feels like it must be a mirage

because I'm blind that my desert is actually an oasis and, unfulfilled,

and I keep Sisyphus-ing my self-esteem up false sand dune hills

Everything I've ever been or could be, I worry, will be nothing but a wash.
