The Wish I Wished By: Carl Johnson II ( Carl The Muse)

27 Mar


Caged until the day I met you

My life was full of heartache

And absent of truth

I remember a time when I had no hope

I looked at my life

And I thought love was a joke

I was laughed at multiple times

It was the same script

The same actors had the same lines

It was a comedy

Starring me

But I was blind to it all

So I went on blindly

Lied to and deceived

Left behind

And forced to my knees

Forced to cry out to God

Hoping he would hear my pleas

I admit I had lost my sense of direction

I felt betrayed by love

When love was what I was protecting

And time and time again

I never learned my lesson

I kept on guessing

I was the last person that should be out there betting

Gambling life away

When I was running out of love to give

I had never been paid

But like a junkie does

Even when I had run out

I would find a way

I would just turn to another

That needed to be saved

When the truth was

I needed to get out of there

And ride the waves

I already knew I was out of place

But I often ignored the truth

When it was right in my face

I thought I knew better

If it was raining

I thought I could single handily

Change the weather

But now that I have been shocked

I know better

I know not to try

I know to wait for my blessing

And to be ready

When it comes falling out of the sky

I know to just take it when it comes

And not question is it true

Like I am asking God why

Why are you sending me the truth?

Why are you rewarding me for knowing

You would come through

That is not a game I will play

Not with my faith

Not with my love

I know that my blessings will come

When they are supposed to

From a power that is greater than us

I might not understand it

But in God’s love

I trust

I have faith

I must

Because I already know

God has shown me many times

If I am drowning

Call upon him

And I will be provided a boat

And if not a boat

Some miracle way to float

I am fully aware

So while my faith may rip

It won’t tear

Try to move me from that spot

Come back years later

I am still there

Now I am and old man

Loving from a rocking chair

But Carl can still walk

Carl can still run and talk

Love has been good to him

Nothing is the same as it was back then

The memories of the heartbreak

Reduced to film

Not even converted to Blu-ray or Dvd

Used as little as the backup to Tom Brady

He is stuck in the present

Lost in the now

So high in the sky

Its hard to come down

So damn happy

He forgot how to frown

I claim it

I have been waiting for a long long time

To unwrap this gift

The only thing I have ever asked for

When I look up to God

And cry my tears

I only ask for
