why are any womyn so phenomenaly trite, hokey, and insecure that they could
ever find even a glimpse of value in this maya angelou saturday night
masterbation of a poem?
its form, its rhyme, its metaphor, its language are all the stuff of
undergraduate poetry workshop fodder and nothing repeat nothing more.

Dear Ms.Maya Angelou,
I was(and still am)touch by your words in this poem.Phenomenal Woman is
something I truly can relate to.It takes a true poet to really be inspired
to write something so True! I just thank God there are people like you who
can really make people feel good about themselves just from a few words.But
of course thats not what I see your poems as. I read this poem in school
and everyone loved it. Thanks to only you(I got an A+). From one of your
fans always.

I first heard this poem in the movie "Poetic Justice". I didn't realize
that it was written by Maya until i took an english lit course in college
this semester. however, when my professor assinged it to another lady in my
class to work on, i imediatly intercepted. i love this poem because it
relates to me in so many ways and i have always admired maya. to me this
poem is like a verse from a womans bible. it insipires those who feel that
beauty is on the outside and remind those of us who are not models that
beauty is at its best when it comes from within.
