Between Me And You By: Carl The Muse (Carl Johnson II)

26 Feb


I sit and I ponder

I have faith but my mind wanders

I admit I worry sometimes

I think too much

I get lost in my mind

Because I have a pain that will not heal with time

My mother has fallen

And made her rise

And now my brother is in a fight for his life

Even though its day

It feels like the dead of night

I can normally see clearly but sometimes tears cloud up my sight

It gets hard to see

And suddenly it feels as if the sky has opened up on me

Its feels like suddenly I have run out of luck

My mind says give up

My soul shouts, NO!

Because the truth is

I know

I know I need the storms to fuel the growth

I am just a seed

 Trying to become a tree

Its just hard when I look up and you are no longer where you used to be

No more being saved from the hot days and rain by your shade

You have gone and now I must take your place

I must withstand winds

And build the foundation upon faith

And just like you I am to show my seeds the way

I am to do the same and prepare them for this day

I am to teach them to love and how to articulate the words to say

I am to show them as you showed me how to live with grace

If ever I look as if I have doubt on my face know that I know the way

I am just somewhere deep inside calling upon my faith

Sometimes I end up too long lost and its my fault because I pay the cost

I have no excuse

I do have a clue

And doubting and wondering is no way to miss you

Because inside I know what is coming I know the truth

I might as well prepare

And act like I know its there

I can feel the winds of change

No reason for me to be playing a guessing game

Smile and say thank you even through this weather

Be happy and proud that you have had the strength to hold it together

Because you know that when it storms

It always gets better

Do you feel that feeling that you feel in your heart?

That spark means you are an inferno just waiting to start

Go ahead and stand up

Speak the truth and do not shut up

Let the world be bright even at night

Be like the moon reflect the light

Spread love to the world around you

Be open to the love of others and let them astound you

Make those you meet be glad that they found you

Show them that a man is supposed to rise above

Show them that a real man is driven by love

Be the man who tends to the farm

Be the man who is not deceptive with charm

There are so many lessons that my momma has taught to me

And as I sit here and write its like she and I begin to speak

As I sat here and wrote out my truth to you

I realized that my momma lives in the words that I write as Carl The Muse

I wanna write more but its finished

And I can feel it in my core

This is one of the moments in prayer

Where I come out better than I was before
