    Poem About Woman by Maya Angelou

    I received this from somebody.. and love sharing this to everybody….
    ‘MAYA ANGELOU’S’

    BEST POEM EVER

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .
    enough
    money within her control to move out
    and rent a place of her own,
    even if she never wants to or needs to…

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
    something

    perfect to wear if the employer,
    or date of her dreams
    wants to see her in an hour..

    A WOMAN SHOULD
    HAVE .
    a youth she’s content to leave behind

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
    a past juicy

    enough that she’s looking forward to
    retelling it in her
    old age….

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
    a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…


    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
    one friend who

    always makes her laugh.. and one who lets her cry…

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
    a good piece

    of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her
    family…

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
    eight

    matching plates, wine glasses with stems,
    and a recipe for
    a meal,
    that will make her guests feel honored…

    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .
    a feeling of
    control over her destiny..

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD
    KNOW…
    how to fall in love without losing herself..

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
    how to quit
    a job,
    break up with a lover,
    and confront a friend
    without;
    ruining the friendship…

    EVERY WOMAN
    SHOULD KNOW…
    when to try harder… and WHEN TO WALK
    AWAY…

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
    that she can’t change the length of her calves,
    the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents..

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
    that her
    childhood may not have been perfect…but it’s over…

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
    what she
    would and wouldn’t do for love or more…

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW….
    how to live
    alone… even if she doesn’t like it…

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.. .
    whom she can trust,
    whom she can’t,
    and why she shouldn’t take it personally…

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

    where to
    go…
    be it to her best friend’s kitchen table..
    or a
    charming Inn in the woods…
    when her soul needs
    soothing…

    EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW..
    What she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
    a month…and a year…
