Conceit

What I would give

To know the right measure of conceit

That one should show

For far too often I express

Too much or not enough

The self-doubt I show

In social interactions

Giving rise to awkward moments

The displays of self-confidence

Mistaken for narcissism and arrogance

So rarely able to strike that balance

Then even when I do

Drawing people in at first

I stray too far

One way or the other

And push them away
