I sleepwalk across the page.
Stop me–you won’t.
I’ll make it up and fake it
until…well, you know.
The term used to be ‘make it’.
Now, it’s ‘become it’.
After all, you can only fake
it so long until you become
so good at it, mistakes and all,
just from repetition.
You’r gonna learn on the way-
on the job training-by doing it
whether you fake it or not.
Most times others will not know
your inner feelings of doubt and
insecurity if you’re good at faking
it (you got to pretend you know
what you’re doing–even if you
don’t) and then one day you’ll
realize you’ve become it–no need
to fake anymore. You don’t need
confidence, you are it.
