The title of my very first blog clearly implies that I've gone through this rite of passage once too often, and yet every time i seem to always run into the same obstacle. what to blog, what to blog? i feel that my random mumblings becomes some what of a habit once the blog is under way. however when its the very first one i feel that nothing i write does its justice. so i wont.
Heres one of my favourite poems that kind of embodies the essence of my blog. Just before you start reading, id like to pre warn you that im not egotistical.how ironic,ive just started a blog.no really, im not. the poem is in reference to women in general and their connection with fashion, style and grace. there within lies the infamous panache.
by Maya AngelouPretty women wonder where my secret liesI'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's sizeBut when I start to tell themThey think I'm telling lies.I say,It's in the reach of my armsThe span of my hips,The stride of my step,The curl of my lips.I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.I walk into a roomJust as cool as you please,And to a man,The fellows stand orFall down on their knees.Then they swarm around me,A hive of honey bees.I say,It's the fire in my eyesAnd the flash of my teeth,The swing of my waist,And the joy in my feet.I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.Men themselves have wonderedWhat they see in me.They try so muchBut they can't touchMy inner mystery.When I try to show them,They say they still can't see.I sayIt's in the arch of my back,The sun of my smile,The ride of my breasts,The grace of my style.I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.Now you understandJust why my head's not bowed.I don't shout or jump aboutOr have to talk real loud.When you see me passingIt ought to make you proud.I say,It's in the click of my heels,The bend of my hair,The palm of my hand,The need of my care,'Cause I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.read my about me, thats everything that you need to know
