Author Laura Marie Clark: A Moment Of Doubt


Am I missing something here?


My training was quite brief, it’s true

Over in two weeks; it’s little surprise that

My progress is a cause for concern.

Everything should have fallen into place by

Now – am I simply not cut out for this?

Teaching demands a more powerful ambition.


Oh, it’s all a learning process, of course

For how much longer, though? How much more can I take?


Do the others have these insecure moments

Of worry, thinking their skills are somehow lacking?

Underneath their confident exteriors, do they

Believe there are still countless improvements to be made?

The truth is, this might not be the place for me.
