A poem about self doubt.
A poem on how the notion of 'what will people say' is so embedded in us that we often forget our individual identity.
We often treat norms or rules as 'truths' just because they are practised so often.
Portraying oneself as a flagbearer of 'restorative justice' while deeply hurting a survivor of sexual violence is not how one proves integrity.
A poem on unlearning and finding ways to accept yourself the way you are.
When your inner voice wins the night.
A poem on imposter syndrome.
It arrives softly, driving anxiety up your torso, hiking up your spine and into your head.
