Pretty Woman

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.

I say
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my steps
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

--Maya Angelou
