    This poem is just - marvelous! The poet herself shows magically her secret but not everybody is able to get it understood! The recitition of Blessed Sherrif gives to this precious work of art a magnificent conclusion! Poet, poem and recitator are ehere together like the Father, the Son and the Holy ghost! Wonderful! ! !

    A collection of cliches about women I guess. Self deception to think she is a phenomenal woman. (Report) Reply

    this piece of writing bored me out of existence, she needs to have a good luck on how she writes her poems and modify them to not bore me so much. (Report) Reply

    She is the Phenomenal Woman.
    she only have the rights to estimate herself.
    she only have the rights to reveal her feminine secrets.
    she only have the rights to dig her past.
    she only have the rights to plan her future.
    she only have the rights for her body and soul.
