The Battle Lost: Ryder’s Birth by Richard M Knittle Jr.

An Epic Poetry Adventure that takes you on a emotional journey into one mans epic battle against the evil’s of addiction and the search and fight for his son Ryder whom is not of his blood.

As the battle starts with hope now gone
a child is born his fourth son
Born from sins and lies of faith
the baby comes with much at stake
His birthing one was lost to war
a casualty of drugs and more
The man who laid his white flag down
was fighting hard to stand his ground
His losses struck deep within his soul
the battles he fought have taken their toll
Though not of his blood and further still
the man and baby grow closer till
The bond they made shall never break
their souls combined for mankind’s sake
The man gave kindness from his heart
and he taught the child right from the start
With the evil now listening and watching more
a baby was coming that would change the war
As darkness was gathering its troops from the east
they were training with armies of the state’s blue beast
With his birthing one ready she kept getting higher
but the baby came early and his name was Ryder
