I will not hide.

I’ve come to find

that I like the fear.

I like the feeling

of doubt escalating

and imagining the tongue-lashing

and finite disappointment

which accompanies negligence and missteps.

I like the fear of failure.

It’s what forces me to pull my shoulders back,

look my mistakes in the eye,

and boldly declare that I don’t know what I’m doing.

I will be wrong,

but I will not hide.
