A Woman Can Raise One By: Carl The Muse


I became a man 

When I learned how to control my rage 

I became a man

When I knew not only what to say

I knew how to say it 

I became a man 

When I stopped thinking of myself 

I no longer cared about material things as much 

I no longer cared as much about wealth 

When I became a man 

I was simply thankful for life and mine, and my families health 

When I became a man

I no longer rushed through my days 

I took time and basked in the moments so the memories would be saved 

When I became a man

I knew how to compete 

I learned how to win with honor 

And how to lose gracefully

When I became a man 

I no longer needed to take the control 

I learned that a leader can often accept a different role

When I became a man 

My soul took over for my mind 

I finally had direction 

I knew which way to drive 

When I became a man 

I shook all my childish ways 

But like the boy did

I still allow myself to play 

When I became a man 

I learned to let go and laugh

I am the get on the ground and play with you dad

When I became a man 

I knew how a man should talk

When I became a man 

I knew I had to walk the walk 

Its no fine line 

A man has but one side 

A man follows his soul 

A man gets better as he gets old 

A man learns to be still as the story unfolds

Patience is a virtue

It is a lesson learned 

Not an answer given to you 

When I became a man 

I saw the world through a different set of eyes 

When I became a man 

What I said and What I did became directly linked to my pride 

When I became a man  

I stood there crying 

I faced the boys worst fear

I had just lost my mom

But I could feel here right there

And I heard her say 

You are a man baby 

You are perfectly aware

She said she was proud 

That I had finally figured it out 

I would be just fine

And that she had no doubt 

 I did not need to be saved 

Her job was done

Her son was raised 

And now I can see 

Like she is living through me 

And with her feminine touch 

And my masculine embrace 

I am ready to play my part 

In this time

In this place 

I am who I am today 

Because a woman showed me the way

Some may not understand 

But I am example 

That a woman 

Can teach a boy 

How to be a man

In honor of the lady 

Who made me me 

Who taught me that a man 

Is about 

Love and Family

A Lifetime Of Sunshine Is On My Mind By: Carl The Muse


This summer has been a blast

I lost things that I once had 

But I didn’t lose the memories

They still last

Time for me has slowed down 

I no longer want it to move fast 

I like where I am 

I remember where I have been 

I look at my life 

I see a gift 

I see someones prayers

I was granted someones wish 

I still have life

I have the love of my kids 

The love of my wife

I made it through my struggles 

I made it to this time 

But I made it because of the love of others

The credit is not all mine

Even when I did not believe 

Those that know me tell me that they have seen

They knew I would get better 

The believed in me

They said they had seen it a million times

I was just adjusting to the weather 

Learning my place

Getting things together and putting on my gameface

I was the only one who thought I was failing and wasting 

To them I was just fine

It was that faith in me

That gave me the strength to break free 

When I was starving

I got just what I needed 

I have faith in love

I believe 

I am an example of what love does 

And so is my family 

So on these summer days

I am just thankful that God heard me 

And that I have done enough right 

To get the things that I have prayed 

The foundation is being laid 

In the sun is where we play 

When I leave this earth 

I will leave my family 

What my family left me

To those that I have lost 

I see 

I am working everyday to craft 

A lifetime of happy memories 

Like you all gave to me

Your seed 

With gratitude

Carl The Muse.

My Life Is Alright By: Carl The Muse

Carl Johnson II (CarlTheMuse)

I am awake I see a new day, the ones that I love are safe, what do I have to say but thank you when I pray, I want the lord to know I appreciate it so that he allows it all to stay at least until I am done and my breath has gone away, I made love all night to my wife so it seems that I am doing something right, and I continue to be blessed in life, the truth is, I am doing alright.

Letting It Go To Let It Flow By: Carl The Muse

I spend too much time thinking writing and not sharing these bits that I am not paid for

Many are unaware of how this writing has blessed my life not just in a monetary sense but in every way this writing has been a release a way to say one of the million things at any given time that may be going through me. The writing here allows me to sit and focus because those of you that know me know I am a ball of energy and I see that I must release. I can only workout so much in a day so to sit and focus it in one place I am either making love to my wife or itching inside because there is something my soul wants me to say. 

I share me here so much and still this is only 55% of me my wife says I can say everything and nothing when I speak.


So this thing may have typos sometimes who knows, I forget to spell check sometimes. Forgive me for those I am surely not the one who purposely ignore typos but I am about to just write what I write without so much thought I will let it flow. 

One of the hardest things is sitting here and stating the truth, there are so many thoughts rolling through my head at one time, I can think myself out of anything I can make things that make no sense at all into something, I can turn something into nothing with this one little tool called my mind. 

I have written ten books and none of them have been published because I cannot get out of my own way, I cannot stop stopping myself in my own tracks, I cannot stop its like a rolling train called my thoughts. I have come to realize that I get trapped in my head and instead of seeing what is out of my eyes, I see whatever I am thinking about instead. 

If I ever could just say all the things that I wanted to say maybe then the thoughts about these things could not so easily take me away. I know how to find peace but that is a place that I do not know how to stay. Its happens every single time, my thoughts come and I am whisked away into my mind. I try my best, the abyss is a place I would like to forget but keeping myself out is a lesson that I have not mastered yet.


I try, I try and I try so hard sometimes I break down and cry. I find myself asking why I end up in darkness when I am surrounded by light but there are so many factors that go into what we see in our lives, it can become a complicated thing that I am trying to leave alone so that I can one day get my wings. I end up in pain because I take myself back to times when I could have gone insane but clearly times have changed but that is what my eyes see and I am looking out of my brain. 


Its a cycle that I am stuck in I have lost before the battle ever begins because as soon as I let it in I am stuck in its winds, taken away from the brighest days, walking the straight and narrow now I am stuck in a maze. All this is going on in my head when this place should be calm while I let the chaos go on in the world instead. I know the truth, I know I end up letting my imagination make me look like a fool when it should be my secret weapon and my favortie tool, I learned how to use this thing way back in school but I am far from that little boy, I imagine the wrong things like grown ups do. 


I am working on it all, I plan on correcting it or at least taming it before the last time my eye lids fall, I want you to be able to say my name and I instantly hear your call because I am sitting there aware with my thoughts off. I am trying my best to master my time to meditate and control my mind. I pray as I try my best to change because my mind is winning too often and I am tired of playing its same silly games. 

I will know I have arrived when its my soul that I have allowed to drive, when I take my hands off the wheel but gripping it tighter and focusing on the way it feels, the here and now is where you belong oh yes its a big deal because every second you are whisked away you are closer to the seconds to the hour to the day to the moment in time when your soul takes it new place so while you are here you need to be here and fully occupy this time and space you may not know it but your mind can steal your time away.

Like A Gentle Wave By: Carl The Muse

gentle-waves-carolyn-fletcher.jpg (900×587)

I have so many thoughts and so many feelings in my head, I often want to share them but I shut down or sometimes blow up instead. I do that thing I do, I get stuck in my head everything was moving but now the light is red. I stop, I do what I shouldn’t and I know I ought not.

 I know the moment that I am making that mistake but still I hesitate. I slowly go down and I let myself deflate instead of saying the words and ridding myself of this weight. It makes no sense to do the samething that I did when I was in trouble as a little kid. There is always a way to say it, if you have something to say. If you hide the truth it will not just go away. You may think you have buried it inside but you know what they say about the truth and how you cannot hide, that statement is the truth its no lie. 

Just when you think you have gotten away the truth will eventually come crashing through like a wave. The problem is not having the words to say, its fear of the reaction that makes people hesitate, your head is never blank, your mouth may not be moving but its not because you have nothing to say. 

Its a wonderful thing the ability to speak and share what is on the inside of me, I can say anything I feel and set myself free no matter what I am thinking or how I feel, I know how to speak, I know how to let it go, no matter what I am saying, I know how to speak easy. I know because I know how I want someone to speak but most of all I know this because of how my momma spoke to me. 

I was taught about the depth of words and I was taught that it was not just about what was being said, it was about how it was being heard, my mother taught me literally that the word speak, means to speak! Words are more than just words from honest people words are also verbs. Speaking is something you actively do, Its something you put your heart and soul into. 

I remember her telling me, Carl say it with empahsis and when I didn’t know how, she would say Carl, say it LIKE THIS! This is what you do. My mother taught me to speak freely but she told me to consider how I say it because once I let the words go they never can be retrived. My mother taught me that in a moment my words could bring someone up or I could take them way down, I could make them feel worthless or like they are wearing a crown. 

Think it through but make sure you share the things inside of you. If you are in a place where you hide your feelings in another place, you may think you are hiding but it can be seen on your face. Let it go, let your feelings be known, if they do not understand where you are at least after they will have a clue where you are going.

Openness and honesty is how any relationship succeeds, You can only fly if you let yourself be free. 

Its not what you say, It is how you say it, That is the key. 

The way you speak determines how you are received. 

No matter what you say, say it gently.

Carl The Muse.
