Phenomenal Woman by Susan Elliott

Maya Angelou once stated
where her secret lies,
wasn’t in her fashion,
stature or her size,

she believed she knew the secret
so with a siren cry
she elevated woman
rebuked the world’s disguise.

Though her thoughts are poignant,
truthful in many ways,
the real phenomenal woman
is hard to find today.

She’s not found in her beauty,
movement or her grace,
not recognized by her stunning smile
though brilliantly displayed.

She is known in her gentle kindness
temperate in her ways.
She teaches of her Savior,
lives within His grace.
