Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a model's fashion 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 steps
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 of my waist
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman
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 for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

    Hi Queen of the Universe,

    Your opinion is worth noting, thank you.

    Hello Queen of the Universe,

    Thank you for your informative blog, it is good to see that people are still sharing their knowledge and experience.

    I am currently working on finding the latest information on child with adhd when I came across your site. My passion is in the area of child with adhd and after finding your blog, I believe we have a real synergy and that my subsrcibers would benefit from your perspective on the topic.

    I would very much appreciate it if you would take the time to have a look at my adhdpodcaster blog. If you think that we do have a common goal (which I think we do), then please feel free to post any relevant information to the blog.

    Whatever area that ties into adhd would be fine, even if it is with relation to personal development (especially time management), you know how notoriously hard it is to keep track of time especially for us :)

    Anyways, really looking forward to your post.

    Thank you for the blog, keep up the good work

    Warmest regards,

    I like your blog, and will add it to "my favorites". I am new to blogging, but not new to car clubs. I have furnished custom made car badges to dozens of car clubs all over the country. I have a web site that I feel you will find both interesting and informative. Please pay me a visit when you have time.

    Hi Queen of the Universe,

    Thank you very much for this post, it was an informative post, very useful.

    I'm currently researching information for youth adhd, would that be a topic that you are familiar with?

    If you could help point me to the right direction it would be much appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and effort.

    Hello Queen of the Universe,

    Your this post post caught my attention while I was doing some research on youth adhd.

    I am currently in the process of creating a holistic treatment program for adhd. The idea is to integrate various treatment modalities so that anyone can benefit.

    Would you care to share some of the secrets that you have gleaned from adhd.

    My subscribers would certainly appreciate any insight that you have to offer.

    Thank you for your post, it was a good read.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Warmest regards,
