I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
The first time i heard “phenomenal woman by Maya Angelou” being recited was in the movie “poetic justice“. Janet Jackson was the one reciting it and i was completely drawn to the words in the poem. They are beautiful and just perfect for every strong,intelligent and confident woman out there. Today i remembered that poem and decided to share it with all my sisters.
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.
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
