about

Imposter syndrome can be defined as a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success. 'Imposters' suffer from chronic self-doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence that override any feelings of success or external proof of their competence.

lyrics

I know who I am but sometimes I’m not really sure
On one hand I do the most yet I wish that could do more
I ain’t where I was before,
I ain’t where I wanna be
I wish I could be the person that you see when you see me


I used to draw, truthfully I was kinda nice at it
I would make transformers and anime characters and
run my momma ragged like,
I need a sketchbook, strathmore, with 100 sheets
colored pencils, I made a stunning peace at least every couple weeks
But I kept it secret, Cause my homie Al used to draw too,
6’7, living legend never had a lesson, plus he could ball too
I felt inferior- so my pad never left my interior,
work my posterior off
But knew deep inside
that my skill, it would never get near to him, so
One day I got exposed,
I took my drawings to school
I thought I would look like a fool
But everyone said they were cool
It Felt great having an audience
But that didn’t help me through all of it
You can have everyone all convinced
And yet still feel fraudulent
That Imposter syndrome
And When you got my skin tone
Depression make its inroads-
North of 30 and it hits home
I’m an unfinished work and I know that to be true spit
I make movements not excuses
Everydays a chance for improvement, yeah

I know who I am but sometimes I’m not really sure
On one hand I do the most yet I wish that could do more
I ain’t where I was before,
I ain’t where I wanna be
I wish I could be the person that you see when you see me

(Noveliss)
A remix of human being
Who Dreamed of doing too many things
But why not?
I figured I'd to do them all unless time stops
I grew up in the gym and the driveway
A scholarship was light work
But started to lose interest when I figured out how my mind worked
Didn't to try to share my taste in anime with my teammates
Then Starting writing poetry
Ask around
They'd never know it's me
The Imposter syndrome
An otaku lost in the locker room
Nobody sat next to me on the busses
My solitude
Every road game in college was writing rhymes
My solace
I've seen the world
But my hunger for more
Remains out of balance
I be pleading with myself to act natural when I get off the stages
But instead I curl up and get flustered too many faces
You'd never know
A product of growing up finding comfort in being alone
But what I apply to my craft from sports is knowing how to be in the zone
Cursed by my perception
Inception
I swear it felt like a good year
Depression in the physical's a smile
From ear to ear
But never veer
Still here...
