Only Light Can Chase Darkness Into Its Place: Carl The Muse

Rays of sunshine breaks through the clouds

It will be ok, we have been here before. In the end the darkness will be met with the light and have no where to run and light will win the battle just like it always does. Darkness will never ever go away but in the end the night always changes back into day. Its history to many and to others it will be brand new, but things never really change, it’s just humanity on its loop, going around and around until we fall off and have burned everything down, We never seem to appreciate what we have until that oasis we thought we were in is no longer there to be found.

The events of late make you wonder why and how are we here still here, one step forward and one leap back, I stress as a father as a person who is a black person but most of all as a man. I want the same things for my family as you would expect of any decent man. For them to love others and to do good things for goodness sake. I want them to learn from me and be better than my mistakes. I want them to be honorable and steady to any human being in need, I want them to be aware of others and not feel like its all about me. I want them to treat others the way the scriptures teach us to love and I want them to be treated that way because of who they are as individuals, not because of how they look. I want what I would think any good person would want for those he loves, but looking at the television and the internet lately would make you feel like you have to give that dream up.

When good people do nothing but good for themselves that good never spreads and the world around them can turn into hell. Because there is a huge difference between living and living well. Ask yourself where have you been in these years as you watched things start to go south, living your life in service of or just doing great yourself. The world is in peril and begging the good people to help at the grocery stores, in traffic, on social media, they are in need of you, your voice, your presence your love in the midst of the hate. The bad in the world must at some point be put in its place and remember only your light and love can chase darkness away and hate away, Water will always win the war against the flame.

Time moves on with or without you but if you allow time to do its thing it can heal deep wounds. The scars will remain but the pain, it changes. 

The most difficult part of the storm isn’t the storm, the difficult part comes when the storm is gone and in the midst of the calm you were longing for. 


Say it And Save It By: Carl The Muse

Motivation, Perspective and Inspiration By:Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

All I ever wanted you to say to me was, SOMETHING.

When you see me at my lowest and totally outside of myself, that’s when I most need you, that’s when I need your HELP.

When I am covered in fire and burning up our love, you could put the inferno out if you just gave me HUG.

The only thing that has ever served as my motivation, is when you showed me your APPRECIATION.

This time I may be wrong, last time you may have been right. The only thing I’m saying to you my love, is I’d rather do anything with you but FIGHT.

I can’t make you say what you don’t want to, but can you please remember the same silence when you lie and aren’t ready to tell the TRUTH.

You come my heart starts to race and hours later I want you out of my…

The Couple That Fights Every Night By: Carl The Muse

The Clandestine Perspective


A storm rages when I walk through the door 

Shes standing there daring me and ready

Like she has been waiting for more

And before I know It

I feel a rush to my core

And just like the last time

We end up rolling around on the floor

We go so hard

That we both end up sore

And even when we are both worn out

We go in for more

We end up this way every single night

Biting our teeth and waiting for the kids to say goodnight

I can see it in your eyes

You are just waiting to start another fight

And I am ready for the bell to sound

Because as soon as it does

I will turn over the ground

When I finished you will know

This field has been plowed

I guess that is why we seem to garner a crowd

Wide Eyes: Carl The Muse

Life can take you all over the place and  nowhere at the same time, it’s all about what you allow yourself to see out of your eyes and avoiding the dark spaces that can render the strongest of us blind. Those with 20/20 can often live with less sight than those with none, few of us truly know how we will respond when the worst is yet to come.

The key is to see the rays of the sun, its in dreaming up the better days coming, its about facing what hurts dead on, knowing the winter will soon pass and the summer will come, just stay still and allow it all to happen, halt your soul from the fight or flight and that constant thought of running.

I used to sit just to be right there, I used to eat to taste the food, I used to do it because I could see the depth in what I was doing, I took my time in every moment, I lived as if I cared. I was on a constant climb up, how high could I climb, I was not the soul who was scared.

I often watched life in amazement, from the point of the curious soul, I always want to know more, the how’s, the whys, the who’s, the what’s. I observed everything going on. I saw life and I tried like hell to live it and when I experienced the greatest thing in life ( love ) I tried to give it.

It’s who I am, Its who I was. The one seeking the depth of, The one so hungry for what lies beneath the surface of it all. The fisherman, the fisher of souls, the listener of the stories to be told. It never did happen until I laying on the ground looking up at my feet, that the strength in me comes from the souls I meet, so when I go introvert my energy becomes weak.  I never meet a stranger or a person I don’t try to understand and in learning empathy and practicing sympathy, I had become one hundred times the man.

It’s a lesson taught through personal strife because at some point we get caught in the world and become blind to the fullness of the people and the experiences of life and to all the fruit and fish that the world itself can provide.

If only we just get up and go outside into our lives and out of the darkness of the depression of the eyes through the mind.

The sun is always shining.

Recycling Trash I Gotta Get Past From: Carl The Muse Johnson

Sleepless nights creep up on you in life, they come at the hardest times when your legs can’t possibly move fast enough to keep up with your mind.

It’s been one of the most trying of my life. I am spinning all day and tossing all night.

It’s been a hell of a fight and there was no training no sparring, no chance for preparation, this is a learning on the job situation.

It’s gonna hurt forever, the pain may change but it won’t ever get better. It’s a cold hard fact, I just gotta live with that. I don’t need help being aware of my emotions, it’s how I react.

It’s never as bad as it seems, it’s just the worst to you, because it is your bad dream. Who feels what you feel? Who is dealing when you deal? When it hits like a brick I’m the one who’s nearly killed.

I’m trying to break the cycle of the worst days of my life being recycled but it feels like I’m fighting against hell without the arch angel Michael.



Suddenly Awake by: Carl The Muse Johnson


Suddenly I’m up and awake

Suddenly my soul is perfectly aware of time and space

Suddenly aware of what it takes

Suddenly aware of the rapid pace

Suddenly aware of the inevitability we all face

Suddenly aware of the warmth from the fire

Suddenly immune from it’s flame

Suddenly the perspective fixed

Suddenly I can’t miss

Suddenly the reticle is aimed

Suddenly the harvest is being touched by the rain

Suddenly the drought is no more

Suddenly heaven has opened the flood gates and every door

Suddenly I can breathe again

Suddenly I can feel energy seeping through every pore of my skin

Suddenly it’s all changed and still the sun is shining like it never has before

Suddenly I woke up and my own soul, my own path could no longer be ignored. From the soul of: Carl The Muse Johnson
