PHENOMENAL WOMAN


"A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Phenomenal Woman

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.

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 me.

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 of my care,

'Cause I'm a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That's me.

- Maya Angelou

This is so amazing. Princess Diana, a woman the world admired. Prince Charles made a fool of himself if he thought he abused Diana.

A dear man of God once said that it was not God's initial ideal to create a woman yet the only person that bears the same adjective with the Holyghost is ''woman''.Jesus said i will send you a helper,the promise of the Father and in the book of Genesis God called a woman a helper.The bible said God brought the woman to the man,the same way Jesus gave us the Holyghost.I am grateful to God for ''woman''.He knows i will be helpless and for that reason he gave me the one dear to His heart which is the person of a woman.Thank God for women God has brought to my ways as i walk through this life,from my mother to my wife,my sisters,my friends and Pastors like pastor Anita.I cheerish greatly these people and i will not take them for granted.

Lovely poem. Unimaginable strength lies in a woman, moreso if she has a close relationship with God.
