Maya, I appreciate all of the uplifting words despite right now what this
country is going through. I copied down this poem and took if home to let
me mother and sister read it they both fell in love. Maya, I just honor
your name. Thanx

this poem means so much to me. As a young girl who is not like the norm and
does not have the model body, this poem makes me feel proud to be me. I
read this poem over and over again and each time i can feel my head rising
a little higher. This is a woman's anthem.

i like the poem phenomenal women because i think it show that you are
phenomenal and sometimes women don't. also, that you dont have to be a
super model, fashion model, or super star to be phenomenal.

I don't know where to start! This poem has totally changed my perspective
on life. It seems as though it opened a new door somewhere where I have
never been. Maya hits the nail right on the head by saying that we are
phenomenally a woman! Ladies we are so fearfully and wonderfully made,
let's not take that for granted.
