  Fear of Failure  

I'd like to think

               I'm a  

                        and a    

                                   and good at      

I'd like to think that

              but most times             I can't even
say it.

The words would make
                  the ambitions real

but                       they
             would also                make

the failure real.

I like reality
                                 better than fantasy
and the reality
                                         is probably

I'm not a
                           or a

and maybe not so good at

Of course if you stop
                           saying it
you may end up forgetting

you wanted to be.
