Pretending

Pretending to be real
How did you manage to get here?
Right where you wanted to be
Feeling like a place you don’t deserve
Putting up a wall of confidence
The insecurities in strong reserve

You’ve proven yourself time and time again
So why do you feel like an imposter
Hoping you won’t be figured out
And suddenly taken off the roster

Cover up what you feel
An actor inside your career
Only what you want them to see
Insecurities still in strong reserve
Accomplishments make no difference
It’s always a place you don’t deserve

How can they not see behind the curtain?
Turning a knob and pulling a lever
Making them think they know what you’re about
While pretending with each new endeavor
