I am in sort of confidence

I am in sort of confidence
to perform those tasks, in which
once i was named, as brilliant..

Is this is the, impact of negligence
to update those activities which is
needed to sharpen, my intelligence..

There is not so much difference
in my basics, about those tasks
that i can swear, without reference..

Then, what is that fact, which influence
the acts of my, lack of performance
sure, this is b'coz of my over confidence...

Welcome back! it has been a while..I get this too..I think a job or profession becomes kind of routine after a while and then we tend to become overconfident...and that is when we can make mistakes. I hope that all is well. Good to see you writing again!

Excellent point here. It reminds me of a saying I heard once that went something like, "when a man has come to the conclusion that he has learned everything, it is then that it becomes clear that he has learned nothing."

Good to see you posting again. Hopefully we will see more of your posts?

Good to have you back, thanks for coming by. Confidence, got to have enough to take a chance but it can be squashed when expectations aren't met. Quandry.

I think there is something to be said about the subject of this poem. Interesting.

That is called being in the hype phase, when you think you can do it all and your confidence is over the roof.
