Phenomenal Woman

MAYA ANGELOU…a woman who color the world with words,woman of essence,woman of many talents,a pillar,she is truly  an inspiration..

Everyday  i read this poem silently in my heart

So today i thought i should share this inspiring poem form an amazing poet  to the world 🙂

Many people 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 its 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

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 flesh of my teeth

The swing in my waist

And the joy in my feet

I’m a woman phenomenally

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 me

I say, its 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

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

its in the click of my heels

The bend of my hair

The palms of my hand

The need of my care

cause i’m a woman phenomenally

Phenomenal woman

Thats me

    Lovely! Hi, thank you for the follow! My blog is bilingual, so be patient when I’ll get notices about some Italian poems… I’m trying to keep the posts balanced.
