This poem has made me realize that every woman is beautiful in her own way-
that you don't have to have the tabloid image to be beautiful.I am twelve
years old and this poem has finally made me realize and be proud of what it
is to be a woman.I too, do not have that "perfect" image. A woman is a
great thing to be- we have a sort of feminine greatness and silent grace
about us that is what truly makes us women Every girl should read this
poem! And Maya, you have inspired me, thanks girl!

I attended a wedding on Feb.26,2005. As I danced alone on the dance floor,
men wondered, "who is that?" The way I move is so graceful. I sometimes
think, what is it about me that men see? A friend of mine asked, "have you
ever read "Phenomenal Woman",by Maya Angelou?" I said,"maybe once or
twice". He said, "you need to read it again, and memorize it. As soon as I
got to work, I looked it up on the computer. When I read the poem, it was
like I had never read it before. I felt every word.A "Phenomenal Woman" is
exactly who I am. I Thank You Maya Angelou for this poem. It has given me
such an inspiration, and I have a confidence that I have never had before.
AWSOME POEM, I LOVE IT.

this poem reveals the inner beauties that all women have, meaning that it's
not about the outer appearence of one but, true beuty is based ob the way
in which one carries herself

Personally, I love this poem. I am a plus size woman myself and my self
esteem was very low. After reading Ms. Angelou's poem, my whole attitude
changed. I look at myself different now.The person I see in the mirror is
BEATIFUL. My smile can light up a dark room. It's all because the powerful
words in this poem, that made me love myself for who I am not who I wanted
to be. Now if anyone want to know why my head not low, it because I am a
PHENOMENAL WOMEN no matter where I go!
