Maya Angelou - Insomniac

There are some nights when
sleep plays coy,
aloof and disdainful.
And all the wiles
that I employ to win
its service to my side
are useless as wounded pride,
and much more painful.

I think that your poem is very pasionate and it really touched me I really think that your style of writting is passionate that what you write about is very near and dear to you

Dr. Angelou,

My Colleague, Dr. Godwin Igein, has developed an educational model specifically designed at empowerment of African Women...and has asked me to attempt to contact you regarding your possible collaboration with him to author a Chapter in his Manuscript directed to 'Empowerment of African Women'.

Please contact me at : jreznik888@yahoo.com in order that we may open a formal channel of communication.

Thanks and best regards,

Dr. Joseph A. Resnick
