LuKEY Loose Leaf - AutumNights

[Digital Art Series: The Gospel According to Lukey] [Poetry Collection: 15 Shades of Red Leaves in Autumn] Your beauty surpasses the finest supermodel. Saturated in colors that I artificially mimic, you don’t need a filter. So, I wonder what do you think of me? If you had a voice, what would you tell me? I can only imagine the conversations that we would have. Your lifespan goes beyond measure. You truly have the keys that would unlock our internal gates. You demonstrate how natural disasters mold us into the creation we’re designed to be. You demonstrate how applying pressure transforms us into our alchemy. You teach me things that I already know to be true, but too afraid to acknowledge. No longer will I be bound to my insecurities. No longer will I be shackled to my strongholds. No longer will I be chained to my reactions. I won’t hide behind these filters. I won’t obsess over judgment. I won’t depend on brittle branches. I am GLOwing through life’s lessons. I am learning to be the best version of myself. I am focused on producing fruit. Use your keys to unlock generational blessings. Use your keys to free slaves from internal prisons. Use your keys to expose what's underneath the rubble of regret. Use your keys to illuminate the righteous path. Remind me to push through the barriers of brokenness. Reveal the chains that I hold on to. Replace cultural lies with your kingdom's promises. Release me into the wild, so I can be an example of your love.

LuKEY Loose Leaf - Reflection

[Digital Art Series: The Gospel According to Lukey] [Poetry Collection: 15 Shades of Red Leaves in Autumn] I got broken bones from the sticks and stones I treated college like it was a game of thrones I made decisions listening to hormones I got debt up to my neck in student loans Some things I used to regret Some things I’ll never forget Looking back used to get me upset But now I stare in the mirror to reflect I took a deeper look into my interior And I found something superior No one can tell me that I’m inferior Based on what they see on my exterior Starting with the person in the mirror To make a better place I barely scratched the surface of my issues This is an open case I'm looking to my maker for direction each and every day He's looking back in my reflection to lead the way I was made in His image I know who I see Evolving to who Lukey destined to be The world ain't perfect but we can make it a better place by washing smudges off of our own face No message could've been any clearer I recognize the person in the mirror I was made in His likeness My light on it’s the brightest King's kid. Call me your highness Flow sick - It ain't sinus Spreading Gospel like a virus So, you can not minus. What I see through my iris It’s none but the righteous staring in the mirror I gotta vision that’s bigger than my pockets But one day I’ll take off like a rocket For now, I wait patiently and dock it And share the good news like a prophet No more listening to false prophecies. No more believing in hypocrisies. If I see something wrong I’ll change it. If I’m off course I’ll rearrange it. I ain't perfect, but I get better every day. I try to be the greatest in every way. I don’t get worried about what people say. The mirror is clearer No clouds of grey. Mirror, Mirror, Mirror It is getting clearer Please help me Please help me Reflections of my Deflection Reflections of my Reflection You are staring back at me Made in your image But what do I see Who is this person staring back at me? Ending with the problem in the mirror to get a better view Sankofa, go back to get what you left in the past to get the future too No more taking wrong answers from the Slumdog mirrors No more making the same mistakes from the same ‘ol errors The world ain’t perfect, but we got the power to change it Hop on this journey and cross-range it Blessings may be closer than what they appear Grace and Mercy come together like a pair I said it once before, but let me be clear I’m starting to recognize the person in the mirror I was made in His likeness My light on it’s the brightest King's kid Call me your highness Flow sick - It ain't sinus Spreading Gospel like a virus So, you can not minus What I see through my iris It’s none but the righteous staring in the mirror

LuKEY Loose Leaf - Journey (GLOwUP) | Acrostic Poem

[Digital Art Series: The Gospel According to Lukey] [Poetry Collection: 15 Shades of Red Leaves in Autumn] Guide me through the wilderness of deceit, Jesus. Remember me? I know it’s been a while. Oh God, I need direction because I’ve strayed so far that I don’t know where I am. Wisdom and Insight have abandoned me. There’s nowhere else to turn, Lord. Hear my heart’s cry. Lead me, Guide Me back to You. It’s dark here. By Your spirit, Lord, I will find my way. Each step closer to you I feel the chains falling. Reach down from heaven and remove these burdens. Almighty Godsend your Spirit. Thummim and Urim in my ephod, can I be free? GLOwUP so that I can remove these Irritating chains LinkedIn together by my past hurt and disgrace. Or will you do nothing? Expectant that I will step out on my faith in the One who has called me. No longer allowing strongholds to hold me back and Overcoming the obstacles in my path. Waiting on You to give me the Next steps to the promised land. Evaluate my heart and grade me accordingly. Renew my Spirit and make me clean. Sovereign God, show me how to do it YAHWEH. Help me be patient with You on this journey. Instigate dialogues between You and I to Prepare a good soil that takes root in You Heavenly Father. Unlock doors that will lead me directly to You Nowhere to Now Here is where I want to be Demolish walls that were built from my pain and transgression to Erect fortifications of forgiveness and love that will withstand enemy attacks. Rising above my struggles; climbing and fighting my way through oppression. Push me past the limitations that I’ve created for myself and I will Recognize the strength and power that You provide me through Each struggle You create a foundation that takes me to the next level. Stumbling blocks transformed into building blocks. Self-sabotage transformed to self-love and feelings of being Underappreciated evolves into being understood, I hear Him telling me Reach beyond the stars to establish a legacy that’s bigger than you. Everybody dreams, but I challenge you to wake up from yours and live it.
