Who Is Carl The Muse?


Carl Johnson II (CarlThe Muse)

I am my mothers son

I am an example of how a boy becomes a man

I am the example of how a woman can teach a boy to become one 

I started speaking at a young age

I was just in middle school the first time I took the stage

I did it because its always been in me to speak

I have always been the one who wanted to share the testimonies

I have been saved so many times

I have been sent back to life even after I flatlined 

There is something I am supposed to do

Its simple to me with this platform 

I am simply telling a mans truth’s

It seems simple but then again why do so few?

I learned all of my lessons the hard way 

It is by some divine force that I am standing here today 

Because I am right where I started before

Like my momma said 

I belong on this stage

I am a flotation device 

And there are many

Who need to be saved

I got lost so many times 

And it was because of so many others like my mother 

That helped me along the way 

Many of those people like mom, have passed on 

But its a new dawn

I am doing what they taught me to 

I am singing that same song 

Spreading the good news

If you believe there is nothing that you can’t do

I am a multiple time fool

The gifted kid that almost flunked out of school 

The one who has been called a tool, because I deserved to

I am the baller who never missed a play 

The same one who practiced last night 

And now I have no homework to turn in today

I was that kid for sometime 

Then I snapped to when I realized what was on the line

I am now a husband a father and most of all a man

I spun around like a water spout

And before I destroyed everything

I calmed down 

My passion no longer rules me

My passion does

 Because I live like a tree

On hot days, I provide shade

I am a marker, I show the way

And if you need food, I can provide that too

I am a fully grown seed

Trying to spread the same kind of love and knowledge 

That was given to me

    Very nice, Carl. You definitely have a gift with words. Still curious to see how it would sound with putting some vocals to the lyrics. Keep up the great posts and hit me up.
