Big Lift Ferry Poem F143a and F143b

Big Lift Ferry Poem 143a

If my open mind –
Or my free spirit scares you
From working with me –
Then I have no desire
To underachieve with you

Big Lift Ferry Poem 143b

If you can’t see my
Open mind and free spirit
As strengths to value –
Then I have no desire
To underachieve with you

Notes to this poem…

They are such strengths that if someone viewed them as deterrents, they won’t be open to more possibilities, including those of greater aspiration, that they might as well underachieve. And if they start off with that limitation, they can do it by themselves as far as I’m concerned. I don’t need to waste my time and energy with them any more than they’d want to be with me so we would have a mutually satisfactory solution. 🙂

 

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
