It made a lot of sense. usually when i first read a poem i dont get it or i
dont 0like it but this has become one of my favorites. It changes the
everyday ideal of the envied woman.

I love this poem. Being a woman, it really speaks to my heart. Today, many
people do not understand that a woman does not have to be beautiful only on
the outside, but on the insides as well. It is what she has to offer of
herself that makes her Phenomenal. I live by this poem as I am this
woman:strong, passionate and beautiful. Thank you Ms. Maya Angelou, these
are truly words to stand by.

Today was the first time I had the pleasure to hear the poem "Phenomenal
Woman". I am familiar with Maya Angelou, if you live in this world how can
you not! What an impact she has made on so many people. I am an anglo
woman from the Southwest. We have a very diverse culture and I am proud to
have many friends from different cultures, countries and religions. This
poem was read at a funeral today for a dear friend of my mothers. As I
listened to the poem I thought of what a strong statement the poem made.
We live in a society of only looking at physical beauty and forget the
inner beauty in women. The funeral of Saundra Beard spoke volumes of her
inner beauty, although, she was also beautiful on the outside too! As
women we should always imbrace that beauty that is inside. Thank you Ms.
Angelou for giving us such wonderful words to live by! May God Bless!
