On insecurity

I am always afraid to fail
Even if I do something
That I know, is right

So often, I fear that
I will be a laughing stock
And I keep myself from leaping

I can see the patterns in my life
I can see them stretch out and
Repeat themselves in one go

And then I remember, that through all
I need to learn to trust myself, to feel
That what I feel in my heart is right
