MAYA ANGELOU’S POEM

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,

wants to see her in an hour…or date of her dreams

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…

AND
REMEMBER:
GOOD FRIENDS ARE LIKE STARS.
YOU DON’T ALWAYS SEE THEM,
BUT YOU ALWAYS KNOW THEY ARE
THERE!!!!!!  

Be yourself…everyone else is
already taken.
