Imposter Syndrome

A five-stanza haiku — the struggle is real

An older bald-headed man with glasses and a gray gotee, sitting at a table. His right side is facing the camera and his left hand is supporting his head as he looks down at a notebook he is writing on with his right hand. The picture is in gray-scale. He has a dark NASA t-shirt on and appears to be thinking about what to write in his notebook.

Do I have value
to offer others who read?
Imposter syndrome

Will they read my work
will they care for my writing
I’m scared to publish
