    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

    Phenomenal woman,
    That's me.

    A reader discovers great sense of pride in her words for being a woman- - and beauty lies not in appearance, but in character, character built up so that she raises aloft her head high.
    Highly appreciable poem by Maya.

    This is a very egoistic poem about how she is better than other women.
    Now she is dead it isn't true, if it ever was.

    Adorable sort of writing. Awesome and full of magnificent words that depict strength and tenacity
    of women in a glorious ambience.
    Women are phenomenon and they truly deserve possession of a monopoly on such an sacred and splendid word.

    No doubt it is an example of a good poem, I read I am a common woman by RABINDRANATH TAGORE, that is an extraordinary experience, so I'am not much satisfied. (Report) Reply
