    Truthfully these are lyrics, not a poem. These words have none of the subtlety or emotion present in even modest poetry. You are not taken to another place, you aren't made to think or question. I don't mean to be a snob, but having this at #1 does a great disservice to the thousands of more deserving masterpieces beneath it.

    I like this poem, some of the comments are really harsh! It is also annoying when people read yours just cause they want you to read theirs!
    Why are some people so negative, ? ?

    Does not deserve to be number one on the list. If any of her stuff does its I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

    Maya Angelou is my inspiration and the reason why I love poetry so much.An incredible writer and poet, I am indebted to her for influencing my artistic creativity.Thank you ma'am for being who you are: a genius with words and a guiding light for a young South African that I am.An aspiring poet myself.I cannot begin to say how much this poem: Phenomenal W oman is so composed and eloquent in every aspect.
