Ini nih, puisi wajib buat para wanita di luaran sana, menurut Maya Angelou

Every Woman

Maya Angelou

 

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 bestfriend’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…
