Nothing but the truth, strengthing, breathtaking, and emotional are some of
the words that describes this poem. It truly is "One in a million" and I
think Maya for writing it. I'm looking forward to more poems of this
nature. Thanks Maya!

The poem is one of my favorite poems because when I first read this poem I
felt like this was written about me. And I believe that any true women
would feel that unbelieveable feeling of coinfidence after reading this
wondeerful poem. This poem allows young ladys and women to understand that
your own individualality is the most gorgeous this thing in the world. And
when you have this aspect in your life it's something that not only you
will notice but people will unexpectly notice too.

I love Mya and Phenomenal Women is my favorite poem. It's a poem that
should be shared between every women in god's eye. When I read that poem I
feel deep and emotional because it has me imagining this phenomenal women.
I too am a phenomenal women and I face the same problems. I'm not cute nor
do I have the perfect body but there's still something about me that is
very attractive and I feel it's the realness of me. Thank you Mya.

I have to say this is the most beautiful poem that Mya Angelou has ever
written. She knows how to go deep in a young woman's mind. The depth of her
words tells no boundies. I was able see her in a lecture not long ago, not
only is she a beautiful woman. But she has a craft like no other. Keeping
it real its what makes Mya a Star!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I think this poem is a great come back to all those evil men that look down
on us because we're different. I'm resently finishing a research project on
Maya Angelou and reading how her life was at such an early age this poem
shows curage and demonstrates what a real woman should be like. I'm 19 and
these types of poems do help to become a strong independent woman.
