It has been about 2 months since it happened. I can’t go into detail but my friend is in a place no man wishes to be. He was silly and made a silly mistake and everyday that passes his family and REAL friends wonder his fate. I have not been able to see him, or talk to him. But I think about him everyday and try and make sense of why he would do such a thing but I can’t wrap my head around it. I have nothing but fond memories of him..stubborn, outspoken, rude, some might even think he is a jerk…but he is MY jerk so..love is blind..Stevie Wonder..
Anyways , I have been scrapping for information on his upkeep ever since the incident and have received scanty information..the most optimistic thing I have heard is , ‘he says he is ok and that you shouldn’t worry,’
That was until this morning I spoke to another family member of his. I told him , ‘ tell him to read, gym and pray HAAARD every single day’ The boy responds, ‘that is all he does’ I say ok. Then the boy adds, ‘he is even the football chairman there’
For the first time in 2 months I smiled because despite his unfortunate circumstance, being thrown into the deep..and I mean deep end of the pool..he still finds a way to brighten his corner..to do something he loves and be recognized/acknowledged/loved..maybe respected for it.
We out here..in the free world..should not imprison ourselves to do anything less. Brighten your corner wherever you are..you have something to offer..they might not pay you for it in cash..not now..but maybe in kind..for now..and cash..in the future..
Anything less than doing what you are destined to do is a disservice to yourself,God and mankind.
Lovely Monday folks
