Inspiration Monday

Spread the love

Sorry for the late post. We as women spend so much time trying to be superwoman to everyone else that we forget to take care of ourselves (my excuse for the late post!). I feel that I have stretched myself so thin that I forget that I am important too. If you are anything like me, you don’t here it often enough that you are a phenomenal woman. I had to read this poem by Maya Angelou to remind me. I hope as you go through your week you remember just how phenomenal you are. Enjoy!

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


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



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


Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.


Maya Angelou
