    Wow what a woman! Bravo, that's something to remember, I just read about forgetfullness, and can't retain a single line, but yours is truly PHENOMENAL in all its many senses, colors, sounds of clicking heals, proud rise of head, all women should be able to read this poem...even the most beautiful... it'll make them even more beautiful inside. All men too, so that they'll take a second look at what lies behind the body and mind of such a phenomene called WOMAN...Panmelys (Report) Reply

    Maya fully grasped the meaning of a BEAUTIFUL WOMAN. It's that mature woman, aged as fine wine, by living life to the full. I can't help but see this poem as a self portrait, if I may, of Maya Angelou, the Phenomenal Woman. (Report) Reply

    I think what this is basically trying to say is that people go with how you act. So if you dont respect yourself people wont respect you. But if you do respect yourself then you will be shown a whole new level of respect towards you. (Report) Reply
