After reading Maya Angelou's life story I can understand this poem on a
whole new level. She was a strong and inspiring woman of her time and she
continues to touch and help people (especially women) with her poetry. As a
high school student, I can truely say that (although I hve not really
experienced life as Maya Angelou has) I have a different perspective of
myself and the way I carry myself.

This poem is an inspiration to women everywhere..... All women are
Phenomenal in their own rights. God made each one of us special and unique
remember the bible says you are wonderfully and fearfully made. Each and
every woman should hold there heads up proudly.

The Poem "Phenomenal Woman " was so inspiring. It show's the beautiful side
of a woman. I don't really think that words can describe how good the poem
is. But Maya Angelou is a graet poet.

This poem is beautiful. The first time I heard it I didn't really
appreciate it, I just read it because I had to for school.Now i'm a bit
older and I fully understand the words and it's meaning and I love it.

My Comment should be more interesting because I am man. I really enjoyed
this poem and you feel the confidence is were the real beauty lies. In a
women's soul is where men should start looking, if they want a real women.

I was most fortunate to be in an audience in Winston Salem and hear Ms.
Angelou deliver her poem "Phenomenal Woman". She is the most inspiring
woman I have ever met. I have read several of her books and I am so
inspired and impressed with her success given all the difficulties she had
to overcome. She is the best example of and truly is "a phenomenal woman.
As I reread the poem I could hear her magnificent voice saying those words.
Truly an inspiration.
