This could very well serve as the definition of "phoenomenal", because
every one of us here felt the word reverberate in her pores, her collerbone
and down through the soles of her feet. Thank you Maya.

I would have to say that this is one of my favorite poems. I love the way
the poem makes you sound so confident.Even from a readers expression it
makes me feel strong like I can conquer any task at hand. This poem has
truely inspired me to become a better writer and has put some enlightment
on my work. Thank you MS. Angelou for being an inspiring woman.

I have to say you have done it again you have brought a tear to my eye.That
poem was great,you are my inspirsation. Though I am young, I already know
what I want to be. I want to be another Maya Angelou because you are looked
up to by many and hated by few. I hope one day that I could write something
as great as Phenomenal Woman because THATS ME.
