Phenomenal Woman

Hello all, Hope you all are having a great day.  Sorry today’s post is late, needed some girl time. I have been going through alot lately & just needed to spend the day with my best friend.

Today’s post  is one of my favorite poems. It was given to me by a guest speaker and friend of one of my teachers in college. The class was Women in Literature. I think most women can relete to this poem. This poem helped to be happy with myself the way I am. I hope it does the same for you.

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies

I’m not cute or built to 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 lip,

I’m a woman


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.

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.


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

what they saw they still can’t see.

I say,

it’s the arch of my back,

the sun in my smile,

the ride of my breasts,

the grace of my style.

I’m a woman.


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 need for my care,

’cause I’m a woman,


Phenomenal woman

That’s me.
