|Introduction||Richard M. Knittle is a Best-Selling Author, and a three-time Nominated Texas Poet Laureate Nominee with twenty-two books to his credit. A rough life left him paralyzed with addiction, sorrow, and misfortune; a path leaving most debilitated. He relentlessly fought his demons, empowering himself with understanding and empathy bleeding out in his poetry. Richard's fight for his fourth son, not acknowledged through blood, put this poet in a battle of words. His courage and tenacity blessed him with the right to be the father in his son Ryder's life. The epitome of heroic. Richard is a veteran of two services in the US Navy and US Army National Guard with three honorable discharges. Although he suffers with clinical depression and PTSD; he uses his struggles to advocate for all veterans. He is not only a poet but a published songwriter. I had the pleasure of being a guest on his radio show Poetry because it matters. His warmth and honest sincerity are very much mirrored his poetic words. He is a treasured friend and inspiration to all who read his poetry and are blessed to know him. Gracie A. Matthews Author and Poet|
