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.

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.
