Phenomenal Woman! That’s ME….. & YOU ..

Phenomenal Woman

BY MAYA ANGELOU

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size

But when I start to tell them,

They think I’m telling lies.
I say,

It’s in the reach of my arms,

The span of my hips,

The stride of my step,

The curl of my lips.

I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.

I walk into a room

Just as cool as you please,

And to a man,

The fellows stand or

Fall down on their knees.

Then they swarm around me,

A hive of honey bees.

I say,

It’s the fire in my eyes,

And the flash of my teeth,

The swing in my waist,

And the joy in my feet.

I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered

What they see in me.

They try so much

But they can’t touch

My inner mystery.

When I try to show them,

They say they still can’t see.

I say,

It’s in the arch of my back,

The sun of my smile,

The ride of my breasts,

The grace of my style.

I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.

Now you understand

Just why my head’s not bowed.

I don’t shout or jump about

Or have to talk real loud.

When you see me passing,

It ought to make you proud.

I say,

It’s in the click of my heels,

The bend of my hair,

the palm of my hand,

The need for my care.

’Cause I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.

Hello nzuri!

I am ashamed to say that my first time hearing this poem was in my 40s’! It was at a modern dance show my son was doing and it completely took me in, I was hooked. I remember telling my mother in-love about it, as thou it was new and she then told me it was ONE of her FAVORITES!

Needless to say it is now my favorite as well, it just gives me that underlined, understated since of beautiful sexuality that completely explanes us as women!

WE are phenomenal…

We are these beautiful creatures and I am so grateful to be a phenomenal woman!!

Lol, yes!!! I was in the moment!!! No apologies…
It started at this point, then it progressed to the pictures above!

Until next time nzuri, thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet… Take care.
