Keep The Present Close And The Past In The Distance By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

25 Mar


Stuck in thought

I am trapped in my head

In a maze


My life often flashes before my eyes

And I wake up somewhere in the past

And I am caught by surprise

I am blindsided by thoughts

I start a fight

But ready

I was not




A blow to the head

No one said goodnight

I was put straight to bed

It was the story of my life

Thoughts knock me left

And I was headed right

Falling asleep to a scary dream

Waking up and then thinking of the same thing

Caught in a reality

The same as hell

I could not escape for a moment

Because the visions were in myself

I often wondered about the past

And because I worried so much about then

I forgot to make now last

I was just focused on standing steady

I was not going to fall again

And end up on my A#%

But in the process

I forgot to pay attention to now

And I was blinded again

As I failed to see all of my blessings somehow

Focused on what was no more

I was terrified to move forward

Because of what I had previously found

Behind the door

But this time I must admit

Things are lining up different

Things are falling into place

And its moving fast

Without me even hitting the gas

Or trying to dictate the pace

All I have to do now 

Is be the best me

To win this race

This is a victory lap

Its is no longer a chase

Race is a term I use often


I am racing into life

And walking into my coffin

I am trying to get better

I want to enjoy every day the same

The rainy and sunny weather

I want to be as strong and smooth as leather

I want a life full of harmony

A bunch of dreamers together

I want to move in the wind

I want to travel the world

Like a feather

No more going forward

To fall back

No more sneak attacks

I have to stay in the present

Stop dreaming of the days when I felt like a peasant

Because thoughts of those times do no end up pleasant

Here and now

Is where I will be

At my third eye

Aware of my blessings

Paying attention to it all

Seeing the lessons as lessons



For all the love and light

I end up getting

This Is Now

Then Is Then

The Two

Should Not Be Mixing
