Chapter 1: Richard M Knittle Jr.

Richard M Knittle Jr. is a master poet. He bleeds truth on a page with a vulnerable sincerity. He has walked the paths of darkness, cried to the heavens, wrestled with his demons, and lived to see the glory of hope. His ability to deliver words of pure darkness from a personal understanding leaving a soul touched with hope is delivered with nothing less than a savior’s breath. Reading his poetry is a connection to the friend everyone hopes to have.

Richard M. Knittle is a number one bestselling author and poet with fifteen books to his credit. The darkness of life left him in 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 the son, not acknowledged through blood, put this poet in a battle of words with a judicial system bent on keeping the properness of law but not necessarily the law of righteousness. 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 enjoys presenting his poetry live on stage to audiences through groups such as Spoken Word Poetry. 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 is very much mirrored his poetic words. It was an experience I will always remember. He is a treasured friend and inspiration to all who read his poetry and are blessed to know him.
