Maya Angelou's "phenomenal women" is so beautiful. For the brief time I
read it I feel as if I am living her expirences. She is so strong and has
such an amazing essenence to her.

I was wondering if all of maya angelos' books are just poems or is there
actual story writing.. I was just curious, so maybe if you could email me
and let me know , that would be wonderful!

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.

This is a great poem that has inspired alot of people including me. I love
Maya Angelo and her poetry. Alot more young people should read this poem
because yuoung people have not yet experienced being a woman and this poem
may give a child taht feels like they have no hope alot of hope
