This is for any woman who is down in the dumps or feeling uninspired. “Phenomenal Woman’ by Maya Angelou always reminds me of the strong, subtle, sexiness of being a woman. Any time I read this I am reminded how wonderful, regal, and such a gift it is to be a woman. It reminds me of the beauty and power of being me on the inside and out. I hope this inspires someone and reminds them that yes they are phenomenal woman..just like me.
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 of my care, ‘Cause I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.
WOW!! Such powerful words from such an inspirational woman. Every time I read this I feel like a Warrior Princes! ‘Cause I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.
