-Phenomenal Woman – That Would Be Me, You, Each One Of Us  -Phenomenal Women-

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. – Maya Angelou

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 meMaya Angelou

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 for my care.  ’Cause I’m a woman Phenomenally.  Phenomenal womanMaya Angelou

A Phenomenal Woman Can Be Any Shape Or Size,

creed, religion, age, sexual orientation.  The family she was born into, or the colour of her skin do not matter. She is strong yet weak; she struggles with her own identity from time to time.  But yet she understands that is all part of the game.  Clerance Mose
