Alliteration M – Author Jody Austin

 

Modestly seen menace

Am not

I

Me

Preceded by

Macro melanin hue

 

Madmen be mistaken

About this

Mangata

Perhaps

Mainly misguided

Misunderstandin’ my skin

 

Knowing

This mind

Shines just like

The sun’s brilliance

Across moonlit

Waters

Moon

 

Be skies

Basking in midnight

 

Master’s

Misleading messes

Up our mastering

Moves in mainstream

By modeling

Masterminds

 

Most

Motivation be

Manifesting mental measure

Mindsets minus the

Moronic misconstrued

Miscommunicated

Mean messages

Mean masses matter

Mainly its magnitude

Mostly malicious

Merging

 

Migrations

Miscalculating movement

Meshing our mankind

Mother earth designed

Makes us

Masterpiece……….

About the Author

Jody’s mother was and is still a poet and artist who introduced her to poetry and expressive writing as a child in elementary school. Her bed time stories were of Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez, Marcus Garvey, Phylis Wheatley, Langston Hughes, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Chavez, Gil Scott Heron, Khalil Gibran, The Last Poets, and many others. She  was a classically trained musician in the earlier part of her life, and performed with different bands and ensembles. Coming from a family background of music it was in her blood.  Her aunt was a jazz singer who performed with many of the greats that include Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie ‘Yard Bird’ Parker. There was always a jam session going on. All of these influences started Jody’s creative writing experiences as a child and throughout her adulthood.
