(wonderful Man (Inspired By Maya Angelou's Great Poem 'Phenomenal Woman')) - Poem by Allen Steble

Handsome man ponder at my masculine size.
I'm not huge or toned to appeal to the judges eyes,
but when i begin to tell them
they think i'm telling lies.
I say,
it's in the heat of my endurence,
the sweat on my neck,
the direction of my stride,
and the strength of my pecks
i'm a man
wonderful man,
that's who i am.

I stroll into a room
just as proud as you think,
and to a woman,
the ladies stand or
just stare and blink,
they look at me
like i'm just too crazy.
I say,
it's in the action of my words,
the humour of my jokes,
and those unusual habits,
that make me a bloke,
i'm a man
wonderful man,
that's who i am.

Others themselves have tried to know
just what they observe in me,
they try so hard
but they just get charred
while trying to work out my interior simplicity,
when i try to explain to them
they think i'm silly.
I say,
it's in the scent of my musk,
the hair on my chin,
my listening ears,
the diamonds in my grin,
i'm a man
wonderful man,
that's who i am.

Now you truly realize
why i keep my face low,
i don't brag and prance about
with an inflated ego,
when i pass by
i'll let you know.
I say,
it's in the love of my silence,
the sincerity of my voice,
the planned decision,
in my style of choice,
because i'm a man
wonderful man,
that's who i am!

    When I read the title, I grinned. To me, it was funny and cool. It's a great poem. In the same writing way that Maya used, but a great poem all the same. Made me laugh. Very cool.9-10 =-) (Report) Reply

    A very nice write about the wonderful man. I am happy that
    you were so inspired by Maya Angelou to write such a piece
    as this. It was so boldly written with such manly and not macho
    attributes. An excellent write with a good sense of humor.
