-Thank You Nubian for such an insprational poem.-
I feel that every young lady should read and discuss this poem begining
with middle school because she portrays how confident she is about her
womanhood but is not cocky with it or loud about it. She UNDERSTANDS she's
not perfect but KNOWS her worth. She LOVES herself which I believe that is
always the begining.
-Thank You Again Ms. Maya Angelou, for sharing your knowledge-

I can't express the feelings I feel when I read this work of art, it is
beautiful. Almost as beautiful as the love I share with my dearest
Vincenzo the person from whom I received a link to view and read this poem.

The poem, author Maya and my dearest Vincenzo are so very insightful about
the inner thoughts and feelings of a woman's perception of one's self and
the true inner beauty of a woman that many people never come to realize or

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.
