This poem is so good!!! It shows girls that you don't have to be perfect to
get a guy. Girls are too caught up with how they look, but guys will like
you for you. Guys like confidence, and Maya's poem shows that you don't
have to be the "ideal woman". This poem is the best!!!!

Mya's poems allow me a glimps of what it's like in this world for an
African American woman. She has such a beautiful way of describing objects
and feeling. Phenomenal Woman has inspired me to start a "keepsake box" for
the women in my family. Her poem represents an image of strength and beauty
for all women, of all races, of all sizes... and is very inspiring. =)

This is what I have been looking for to send to my 21 year old daughter
now studying in USA so she can see that womanhood is not just about looking
physically great but also radiating confidence and compassion. Terima kasih
(thank you in Malay language) Maya dear.
