    The way Angelou fully embraces and describes how confidence in herself is how society comes to love, adore, admire, and respect her is lovely. With a free and powerful air, she naturally commands the attention of those in her presence. Others who inquire about her glory come to be further puzzled as she simply replies that she is at her best being herself. Spreading this message of self-love and acceptance, Angelou is truly phenomenal in shaping the world. Reading and reflecting on this empowering work, I am continuously smiling, reminded of myself.

    lovely, the chicken soup of heart for women. If not pretty, we can be charming. But it seems no easy job either.Oh, a big big problem. (Report) Reply

    The mystique of women lies is the charm of their individuality which cannot be easily grasped. An excellent poem and so beautifully expressed. I would highly appreciate if each one of you read my poems and comment on them. Rajesh Thankappan (Report) Reply

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
