Big Lift Ferry Poem F161

I get more confidence from
People’s rejections –
Than their approval

Notes to this poem…

I’m self-critical enough, but also fair enough, I don’t need anybody’s approval for confidence. Their rejection, however, just emboldens me so I get more confidence from that, believing I’m right and they’re wrong, than a nod of approval. This is quite the opposite to how approval and rejection works for most people.

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.
