Greetings, Kittens!

I thought we could use a bit of a pick-me-up around the web. Although only the first stanza fits, even a single stanza of Miss Maya can do a great deal to put us all in the right frame of mind. Here's the beginning of Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou.


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
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I've heard he read this somewhere. Niki Giovanni wrote a similar self confident woman poem. http://looseleafnotes.com

She really is a phenomenal woman. I only just started reading her a year ago, but have great admiration.

Maya Angelou is always a good choice to quote from.
