GOD doesn’t like a Coward
Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes
As my nephew squares away the last of his job and gets ready for college I left him with these words “GOD doesn’t like a Coward… Be Bold and Take on the Challenge.” I was looking for something that would stick in his head as he gets up and leaves the family to be his own Man! He’s not going to school anywhere near where any of my family is located. No one is escorting him to the college so he’ll have to get on that plane and make it happen. I wanted him to know I’m aware he’s scared but GOD doesn’t like a coward and to handle it.
When I was moving and building in this game that was the statement I said to myself. I can’t act like I originated it as it’s a part of the movie Untouchables where Sean Connery decides Fvck it and he’s going to join the fight to take on Al Capone. When I was younger watching that movie that was the statement that stuck in my head. WOW, if GOD doesn’t like a Coward then I have no choice but to be bold in this game. I know it’s fiction but that theme seem to fit my life at that moment. I think I was about 17 or 18 watching that movie so that’s the same age as my nephew now.
Every once in a while I lose focus in this game and I double back to that saying. I never did respond well to that soft peddle shit in life as life was rough and I had to be rougher than it. There are mountains to climb and I’m barefoot in this bitch but I got to climb them. I saw that saying the same way some young kat being a suicide bomber takes his mission. If GOD doesn’t like a Coward then I don’t want to be on the wrong side of GOD.
Either way on this Tuesday, as I see my nephew walk out the door; I remember what I told myself. GOD doesn’t like a Coward so I have to be Bold in this life. As crazy as all that sounds me believing in that saying during the rough times is actually what made me succeed and endure and prosper during some shit I would’ve never do again!
