Awhile prior to my previously addressed epiphany, I sat and talked with my Pops. He relayed this to me, "Son, I knew you would be okay. Your old man is happy with it all. (Just so you know)...you did not have to prove it to me, but I enjoy getting to see it. This world don't owe me nothing." I heard my Pops that day, and I never looked back. A few months later, my father went home to be with his Father.
In this moment, I understand. The empire was built long ago. I am just carrying out the actuality. Pops seen pass the now which allows him to live forever. A chip off the old block, I do not do it for today. I do it forever. The empire is inevitable. I am living a legacy.
