Ms. Angelou Phenomenal Woman is the poem for all women. I am not a model
type and for a long time had low self esteem. I no longer think I am not
worthy and reading this poem helps to reaffirm my new found self worth so
thank you for putting into words what we as women truly are PHENOMENAL

I have to do a report on Maya Angelo. I had a choice of her or Lena Horne.
I picked Mrs. Angleo because I like to read poems. I took intrest in it
because I like to know what people think sometimes. The first time I heard
this poem, I was watching Poetic Justice. Im pretty sure that there are
alot of people that know your poem. I would say that it's the most famous
peom that you have. I didn't quite understand it but now that Im older, I
get what you are trying to get out there. Be proud of yourself. All women
of differnt ages are phenomenal in there own way and no matter how you look
carry yourself proudly. You don't have to be a super model.
