Guess Who

On the verge
Of taking a step,
But stirrings of doubt
Has you hesitating.

‘Aha!’ it sneers.
‘I knew it!
Pitiful. Hopeless.
Woeful beyond belief!’

Listening too well
To its nagging,
Like oxygen feeding
A hungry fire.

You freeze
Too scared to move
For fear of ridicule,
Or worse.

But only you,
And you alone
Possess the power to
Extinguish its flame.

Can you guess who ‘it’ is?
