You Need To Drive, You Need To Steer, You Need To Be Actively Engaged You Need To Be Here By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

01 Jan


I often tell myself, slow down Carl

You are moving too fast to see it all

Take the time to look around

The whole world is a treasure

Just waiting to be found.

 I must admit sometimes I digress

I get blinded, I get rattled, I get stressed

These are the times that I disobey my soul

I go into autopilot and I start to go with traffics flow

 I’m normally the one who is out in the lead

But when I am not actively steering

 I start moving at a pace, that I know I shouldn’t be.

I know Its honestly, partially a shame

That someone so blessed with perception

Has the ability to ever lose sight of the game

To lose the feel

When you have an inside track

On what is and what is not real

Yeah sometimes I am not driving

I’m just passing by

And that means I have messed up

And I am no longer present in my own life

I have gone into autopilot.

I have made this mistake to me too many times

I have run over the line as I got lost in mind

 I am blessed to have love because I can often hear the voice say

You want to go right you have to pray

And with faith you take control and drive it that way

But nowhere is where it will lead

if in place is where you stay

You must at least be actively trying

If there is somewhere you know you should be

You have to start driving

You need to shift it into gear

You need to take be engaged on the drive, you need to actively steer.

Groundhog Day, Autopilot its all the same thing

You will lose sight of your blessings

When you stop being actively engaged and just start speeding

So I am thankful for the voice that continues to be a voice in my head

Because when I start veering off that way

He directs me back this way instead.

You Need To Drive, You Need To Steer, You Need To Be Actively Engaged You Need To Be Here.
