《非凡女人》

作者:玛雅安吉洛

常常有人想知道我的
1192;诀。

而我天生不具魅力,
0063;没有模特的身材。

当我告诉他们的时候
5292;

他们却认为我在敷衍
2290;

我说,

秘诀在我的臂弯,

在我臀部的宽度,

在我步幅的进退之间
5292;

在我翘起的嘴角。

我是女人,

平凡而显非凡。

纯粹的女人,

就是我。



我步入房间,

不经意间自风流,

从而得到男性之青睐
2290;

男人们或站立或跪求
5292;

纷至沓来围绕着我,

像一群蜜蜂。

我说,

秘诀在我双眸中的热
4773;,

在我的皓齿开合之余
5292;

在我腰肢的扭动,

以及在我的步履凿凿
2290;

我是女人,

平凡而显非凡。

纯粹的女人,

就是我。



男人们自己也纳闷,

在我身上能见到什么
5311;

他们费心地寻觅,

终不能探得

我心底的秘密。

我向他们尽力展示,

他们仍然不知所云。

我说,

秘诀在于我婀娜的身
6448;,

灿然的笑容,

起伏的胸部,

举止的优雅。

我是女人,

平凡而显非凡。

纯粹的女人,

就是我。



现在大家该明白

我为何不低垂着头,

不狂嚷或乱跳,

甚至不高声言语。

有人若见我走过,

总感到一份豪气。

我说,

秘诀在于我步履轻盈
5292;

在于我长发卷卷,

在于我巧手纤纤,

在于我的倾心关爱。

因为我是女人,

平凡而显非凡。

纯粹的女人,

就是我。

poem you will feel like the most beautiful, one eyed snaggle tooth women

I am a puertorican woman who is proud of my race, I adore the fact that 1/3
of the blood that runs in my veins is the blood of my ancestors who were
black slaves. Maybe many people in the world don't know that "boricuas" are
a race that comes from three, spanish, "tainos (indians)" and black. And
let me say that our Flavor and Heart is all black...
It is incredible how you write Miss Maya, there is nothing that you had
wrote that I don't applaud with every fiber of my heart and soul.
Thank you Miss Maya for sharing the wonderful talent you have with all of
us and for making the women who read your material feel ....Phenomenal
Peace
