    Nothing if not swaggeringly self confident. Is it just me or can I hear a waterfall of tears too? Maybe not. (Report) Reply

    This poem is all about confidence and is what I like about poetry. Especially now when women try so hard to live up to society's expectation.
    Its a timeless poem that is still relevant today. (Report) Reply

    Yes, the real qualities of a phenomenal woman have a universal appeal. This is a wonderful poem which should give a clarion call to the world which still treats women as a second class citizen vis-a-vis their male counterparts. (Report) Reply

    Well, every detail of a real woman is contemplated deeply and revealed at its deserving gravity and truth. It is not a woman in dimension different, a woman as woman has always been, but often failed to understand by both men and women alike! . yes, a phenomenal version of her by Maya's angelic pen. God bless her in the after, amen. (Report) Reply
