Who Do You See By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

07 Feb


I often dream about it all

I sit and reflect on whats inside of Carl

I find tragedy and triumph

I find a story as inspiring as Forest Gump

I find love, I find pain

I find sunshine, I find rain

If you feel it, It is exactly how you feel

Inside of here everything is real

I find scars that have healed and scars that remain

I find evidence of a very tough game

But when you play it right

The result is always the same

Win or lose, you will gain

The result with faith never changes

I has but one right angle

Faith never runs the other way

Faith is steady

And always in place

This is the reason I often stare into my face

I look into his eyes to see 

Who is it staring back at me?

Is this man walking the walk?

What does he say? Does he talk the talk?

Would I follow him?

Do I believe enough to go out on a limb?

I am the first check and balance for myself

I scrutinize me like no one else

And I am getting better

At my prepration and response to severe weather

I plant seeds and build shelter

I have found the formula to be wealthy

And I’m still in competition with myself

Aiming for perfection in love, life

Aiming for harmony with my spiritual and physical self

I am trying my damnedest to be the best version of myself

I do it for you, for them, for everyone else

The man in the mirror does what he does out of love

And he is consistent and sure

He does not love on a whim

He is bursting with light in his eyes

He has love in his life he cannot hide it

That is who I am looking to see

When I look in the mirror and stare at me
