IN LOVING MEMORY OF DR. MAYA ANGELOU A PHENOMENAL WOMAN

Today May 28, 2014 the world has lost a great contributor to our society. Dr. Maya Angelou has died at the age of 86. Her beauty spoke in volumes. With enrichment from her soul. She shined a light that illuminated beyond her scope. Owning her greatness for all the world to see. One mustn’t compromise her femininity. An inspiration from our youth to fully grown. Your Sun has set, no longer amongst your own. The King saw fit for you to go home. We at WHATSHOTINHIPHOP.com, LLC would like to send our condolences to Dr. Angelou’s family and friends. Rest peacefully Dr. Maya Angelou.

 

Phenomenal Woman

By Dr. 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
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 for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
