Book Review: Phenomenal Woman

Phenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating WomenPhenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women by Maya Angelou
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Whenever I feel the pressure of a misogynistic world, this is the book I will run to. I will open this tiny collection of four poems and gain the strength and power of a truly phenomenal woman. When I have my own home and I begin to collect the books that I want at my side, this will be one of the first I seek.

They accuse me of livin'
from day to day,
but who are they kiddin'?
So are they.

My life ain't heaven
but it sure ain't hell.
I'm not on top
but I call it swell
