I Believe Me

Many would find it surprising
That yesterday was the first time
I felt like I wasn’t a fraud
When I said, “I’m an author.”
My mind has been
Filled with, “yeah, but”
And maybe I am, but I’m not
And a whole bunch
Of other phrases
That are full of self-denial
So here I sit writing
Knowing for the first time
What has been obvious
To everyone else
I finally believe you
