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
Mya.

I love this poem, it is my favorite poem by Maya Angelou. I read this poem
to my girl scout troop and had them tell me what it meant to each of them.
I was suprised at what each girl took away from the poem. I think its a
great coming of age poem for young girls to read. A big "Thank you" to Maya
for her works.

A forceful description delivering clarity of what a woman is or can be or
should be. I think very to the point and delicately done.
I too am the author of When The Red Brick Road Turned Yellow. I would like
to follow this with Life of A Wife

This poem should be very touching to young females because if they read
this poem then they should understand that all Mya is saying is that with
respect for yourself then you are all the Phenomenal women that any REAL
man will need. Take your time and read this poem and see if this is the
women that you consider yourself to be because I know that is me,
Phenomenal Women.
