I enjoyed reading this poem in class because it makes one think that if
they have low self-esteem then they should not let anyone put them down.
Just by reading this poem it would raise your self esteem and make you look
at yourself as a better person. No matter how you look men should judge
you by your personality. After i read this poem i realized that the most of
the things mentioned are true about a lot of women.
Thanks and good jog Maya Angelou your the best......

I've loved this poem since the movie "POETIC JUSTICE" when Janet Jackson
read it. Not knowing that it was one of Dr.Angelo's poems when i saw the
movie seeing it here just gave me chills.

This peom has touched me in a way that no peom has touched me before.I am a
peom writer and I don't think I would have gotton that deep. But the
delicate of the peom is so beutiful and every woman, child,mother should be
proud of their outer features. I know I am and a Phenomenal Woman I shall

I love Dr. Angelo she is a breath of fresh air, she is inspiring to anyone
who is willing to listen to her. She to me is like an earthly angle just
looking to give knowledge to anyone who is willing to listen. Listen to
her tonation and pitch and you to can hear her sincerity...give me more
