Obiora Embry
“Self-doubt imprisons those that never overcome it.”
Obiora Embry

Sylvia Plath
“I am drowning in negativism, self-hate, doubt, madness - and even I am not strong enough to deny the routine, the rote, to simplify. No, I go plodding on, afraid that the blank hell in back of my eyes will break through, spewing forth like a dark pestilence; afraid that the disease which eats away the pith of my body with merciless impersonality will break forth in obvious sores and warts, screaming "Traitor, sinner, imposter.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
