You Ought To Be Ashamed

You Ought To Be Ashamed

By: Carl The Muse

Every thing is breaking and even though I have no way to fix it. I am aware that my life can be much worse than this.

I have endured more pain and made it safely through heavier rain, If I did it back then I can do it again. I always come back unscathed and always a lot more brave.

This is the journey of good any woman and any good man. The trick to this thing is having the faith to know you can. You either have it or you don’t, you will believe it or you won’t.

That’s called faith and it can be a really hard game but after all this practice you should be ashamed.

You should be ashamed because you always forget.

His record is perfect he has not failed you yet.

Whatever It Takes

 

Whatever It takes

By: Carl The Muse

There is nothing that I won’t do when it comes to you.

No mountain, No fire, No sea that could stop me.

And I would be precise I would not do it sloppy.

I would put my target right on you and, say “Ok, God lead the way”

I would follow the light and see my way through the dark nights.

You will always know my aim is pointed to the right and also right at you. Like those good deeds, you are the other thing that I want to do.

You are an action or better yet lets say verb. You are more than just you, to me you are an action type word.

When I think of you, I think of what I want to do.

I think of what I need to do to get closer to you.

You are like words to me, once I say it! I am obligated to do it, and to do my best to bust right through it.

I am to go to the very core of your soul and when I hit the core I will have found gold.

I am pointed right at you.

That Is Not Me On TV

 

Sick Of The Way TV Shows Me

By: Carl The Muse

I tried to hold it in, I really did but after watching Love and Hip Hop I cannot say anything but damn. How did it come to this?

We wanted to be like the rest of America and we got our wish. Now we have women on TV acting like Snooki.

We went from the finding the light in the struggle and enjoying the Good Times. We eventually moved on up to the apartment in the sky, it seemed like black America could do nothing but rise.

Then came the Cosby show and the motivation for education and families. This was the aim of those that wanted us portrayed on television like a people with the ability to do more than sing and dance.

We went from having an identity to simply trying to fit in, the second a people loses its identity then the downfall begins. We have lost our way and that is why you see the black America you see today.

We have always had to crossover and always felt the need to fit in, if you look at the black groups from back in the day most of the problems began as they tried to fit in.

They have lost the way and no there is a role that they are willing to play. Why play this roles that you know are old? Old and played out is the angry black woman who cannot stop talking and old is the brother that gets has women pregnant all over the place.

This is old, we have seen these stereo types for years, can we have some new trends Hollywood and television executives? Can we change too? Because no longer is the bushy haired caucasian woman or the unattractive everyday caucasian man seen on television or in the movies like we once saw.

The trends have changed and they have portrayed the single fun attractive girl and the smooth muscular man who is what represents white America in Hollywood. Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Sam Worthington just to name a few because I could go on forever.

The environment for a new breed of black man or woman on television or in movies is non existent, we are always shown in one of the stereo typical roles and you know what we have to stop taking those peanuts thrown our way.

Time for Bollywood in Atlanta or NYC its time for a Television revolution to me. It is time to show the other type so the masses can know what is right and and so they will notice was wrong and not push it from view because I am sick of being judged just because you look like me. I am not the type they like to show on TV.

Thanks to those that have come before but it seems once they get in Hollywood closes the door after they meet the quota they do not need any more. This is how it is and this is how it will be unless you start demanding that the ones of us on TV look like you and me.

Stop watching these silly shows and watch how fast it goes. I am willing to bet it is black folk holding up the shows that make you throw up in your throat.

We cannot demand anything while we support the very systems that hold us down and to do nothing is to do something .

You are helping! You are helping nothing change.

Standing TALL

 

STANDING TALL

By: Carl The Muse

A good soul, with a whole lotta swag.

One of those who refuses to lose, Carl The Muse.

I wanna to win, so I go all the way in.

I can’t be it, if you cannot see it.

I like actions and words to come in tandem these two things cannot come at random.

This a thing that we always need, we need to hear your words and know we can believe.

I always do one thing and that is give my best because I am too confident to fail this test.

I told you I could win so I must go all the way in, I gotta prove myself because lying is a sin.

I am no sinner but I a definite winner, let me in and this whole team can win.

No I am not a superstar, I am the moon, I am just a reflection of God’s light.

I am consistent and resistant to anything that can hinder my spiritual health.

Why would I want to die when I am man with all this wealth?

I am wealthy with time and wealthy with health.

Thank you God for blessing me, Is this all you wanted is me doing good deeds?

Is all you wanted is for me to be a reflection of the light, so you could show me the way through the darkest nights?

What a simple deal and how easy was that to see, the only fool ever around is me.

I was blind to what was always mine, it was never you who was wasting time.

I always had the light I just needed to use it right, I pointed it in the right direction, hit that mirror and got a reflection.

Photo opportunities in abundance you want me to be a reflection of the light.

No more hiding and staying out of sight, while dark souls rule the world like it is their right.

A Reflection Of His Light

A Reflection Of His Light

By: Carl The Muse

You can be looking at darkness and see nothing but light. Light shines and light dominates the dark. The light allows it to show, the light exposes what you could not otherwise see. If you are not looking at the sun and you are living behind your eye lids you will see nothing and the darkness will dominate you.

I am dark but when you look at me you see light. I am the thing that brightens up every night. I am distant but I do not look that far away I am so bright it seems I am right in your face.

The moon itself has no light, when you see the moon shining so bright the moon is doing nothing more than being a reflection of light. The moon is a mirror to the sun and the stars, as the sun lights our days the moon reflects the sun and lights our nights.

What if we could be the moon and be nothing but a reflection of light. Many of the messages from God are right in our faces to see. God is the sun and I am the moon. I have no light as bright as I may seem that is Gods light shining through me.

God hides many of his messages in plain sight, be a reflection of light and you will see your way through the darkest nights.

My Faith Lets Me Know It

My Faith Lets Me Know

By: Carl The Muse

I got the get in where I fit in attitude. I just want in the door, I only want a second little and I will take a whole lot more, I want and inch and I will take a mile, I just want one shot. Just one chance to give all I got.

I only ask for one try because I know I will win, so give me that chance just let me in. One try, one day, one rule, one play.

That is all that I ask for I do not need much more. That one chance is the first and last dance.

I don’t ask for much all I am asking for is a try, just one opportunity to show I am your guy.

I am the one who refuses to lose. All I am willing to do is win, anything else to my soul is a sin.

One turn, One Drive, One ride, One day, One Second, One Minute that is all I need to get all the way in it.

Once you have given me the chance it is over this was the last dance, you can say checkmate because its already over I win.

Yes this is me, this is Carl The Muse. I am just one of these people that refuses to lose.

The lord often brings me down to my knees but I recover, say” God Bless you”, like the trial was a sneeze.

I have faith in the rain and the ability to abstain from activities that hurt my own wealth. My wealth in love, My wealth in life, My wealth in happiness and my wealth in self.

I believe in me the most when I know he has control of me.

I am cocky and confident when God is at my wheel, you see the ride gets great it is something you can feel.

Let Him Lead and you can go no direction but right and you can do nothing but win, the second you let him take over your victory begins.

Build Empires And Others Will Build The Bridges

Build Empires and Others Will Build Bridges

By: Carl The Muse

There is a generation that is thinning out in front of our faces. Many of our greats are being lost and I do not know if my generation is aware but we are thinning out as well.

There are black networks on air but if you see what is going on we are no longer what is considered mainstream so no new black shows are popping up on FOX, ABC or NBC; And if you have not noticed the shows on the New black networks are Old shows that the other networks had thrown away in the vaults along with the ideas for any shows aimed at blacks.

We are no longer trending up, they say that television reflects culture. If this is the case than lots can be said. The shows that are popping up are Spanish themed, the advertising is Spanish themed. The issues being focused on in the election immigration is Spanish themed. There is a new America and Obama may be the last hurah.

Now we cannot say we have not had a Black President and at this rate you will never see another. Not with the way that this race is losing its steam.

It looks like we have peaked and no one seems to notice, for as many blacks as we think we have in power if you looked closer there are more Hispanics in positions of power by far.

I have no problem with the Spanish culture, mine could learn lots from them. This is just a statement of fact, there is one black on the supreme court and many could argue he hurts more than he helps but the fact is there is one there and that seems to be enough for us.

No fuss was made when the President went with the Hispanic woman because it was time right? It was Hispanic women that raised white babies and sat at the bottom of America forever right? The movie the help was about the struggle of Spanish women in America. That is the reason that no black woman has been appointed still it is because they have not earned it.

Then Justice Kagan the Harvard law dean, she was next she was the white woman from Harvard that had been discriminated upon all of her life because she is an obviously gay woman. She is the reward to the gay community for the churches that burnt and the kids that hung, she was put there as a way to reward the gay community for the atrocities that happened to all the gay slaves throughout America.

I guess there are no gay black female judges because he could have could two birds with one stone. But this is what happens with our culture, We bend our own culture and beliefs to fit the rest of America we are willing to do anything to get in and anything to stay there.

I thought we were supposed to have so much fight in us, no Hispanics have the fight they did not bend and they are forcing America to adapt to them. This is what comes when people unite and we used to know this.

We did not build upon the momentum that was started by many of the people who dot this list and this is just from this year. These people were not D-List black stars because a black star is a black star. They are everything that we rarely see so we notice them all.

These people were so important to us building bridges into mainstream America, the bridges were built and we could finally roam the entire land and that is what we did but many of us forgot to come back and redevelop our own land.

We get out of where we are from and we forget to come back and build upon it. We are the culture that thins out and gets weaker it seems, because every soul that is on this list should have built an empire and we should have given them the same second life that has been given to people like Betty White.

We always forget about our own, not that we even live long enough to reap the blessings of the golden years in most cases because we seem to all die real early but that is another discussion.

My generation needs to build but this time instead of building bridges to the outside we need to build some empires inside, so that when we pass the next generation can be better than the last.


The black community needs to fix the black community, black stars need to create more black stars, blacks in every field need to find someone who is like you and looks like you and show them the way, yeah we can be crabs in a bucket and all of us can pull each other up.


Gone but never forgotten.

Teach your kids about them and the others not listed here.
