Well regina green just to inform you maya maybe thinking of black females
when wrinting this poem but my philippino/ecuadorian/italian behind as

takes away from the beauty of the poem as well as the feeling for non-black

This poem is very inspiring to women everywhere!It's really great. This
past July, my cousin competed in the Miss New York State pagent and as her
talent she did an interpertive dance to this poem. She recieved a standing
ovation from all the women in the audience and everyone came up to her
after the performance and told her how great it was. She came in first

I believe that this poem is a great and wonderful poem for many many types
of woman. I think any woman can learn and receive a lot from this poem. It
is touching and inspirational. I also did this for a school project and
everyone loved it and I had people asking me about it for days. I love Maya
