Personally, I love this poem. I am a plus size woman myself and my self
esteem was very low. After reading Ms. Angelou's poem, my whole attitude
changed. I look at myself different now.The person I see in the mirror is
BEATIFUL. My smile can light up a dark room. It's all because the powerful
words in this poem, that made me love myself for who I am not who I wanted
to be. Now if anyone want to know why my head not low, it because I am a
PHENOMENAL WOMEN no matter where I go!

I love your poem!You see I am a phenomenal but than they (boys)don't get
point of when I just don't wanna talk to them but they try so hard.From
your poem I learned it's harder to be a thin type then a phenomenal
woman.All because of the fact of when a man trys to hit on them and they
say no the boys just don't listen.You made me and my friends that we should
be proud of our self of the way we look.Your poem really expired me. My
boyfriend says thank you because now we are both comfortable about the way
we look.Mostly me!!

I want to thank Ms. Maya Angelou for writing this poem. Every woman should
have a copy of this somewhere in her possession. It is powerful,
inspirational and most of all the TRUTH. Not all women are cut from the
same mold, but each one of us has a uniqueness about ourselves and so what
if no one else can see it, we can. Women be proud and know that all of you
are Phenomenal!

What a great poem. The most perfect use of words to describe how pothetic
men really are. Maya Angelo has brilliant eyes; she sees things like
stanzas in her poetry. She is the best! And "Phenomenal Woman" is the most
uplifting poem that any women can and will read in her lifetime. ThanXs
lifting my self-esteem Mya. You are a very powerful voice in my life and I
am amazed by the strength in your work.

This poem should be inspiring to all women who really want repect for
themselves.Mayo Angelou really told and showed the world that she does not
have to be loud or put on a show to get what she wants. All in all I think
she was telling us women that we should be seen not heard.I give her 10
thumbs up. I lofve u. #1 fan
