Image
My dear Richard, I am so blessed to have such a kind and big hearted Poet friend such as yourself. I can feel your heartbeat and it's coming from the depths of Heaven's gates.. spilling out over the land, and all over me.. it's pure love.. and I accept it as a Gift from our God I only hope that one day I will myself own such a beautiful as yours.. Thank you!

Hi Richard. I just wanted to let you know that I could really relate to your poem about Love tonight. I too often wonder Where did Love go? But like you said we stop and think of our children and grandchildren.. then we remember that love will always be alive. Your gifted words really touched my heart tonight and for that reassurance, I thank you!


Live Poetry tonight soon by Poet Richard M Knittle Jr. A Texas Poet Laureate in sunny Southern California.

We were all born

We were all born
We were all born down here on this planet together
but nobody really even cares from all of the garbage
that we create and then just throw on the ground to
all the pollution that we pump up into the air.
we are all divided by race, wealth, gender, religion
and the color of our skins and for what? We all
bleed the same color and shed the same tears
for family, pain, feelings and fears, when you look
at a man you need to see what is on the inside
before you make up your mind stop labeling us
with colors since we are all the same in Gods eyes
who started it does anybody really know or even
how long it is been? let's get educated look forward
not back where we have been because there is no fault
I mean all sides are wrong we share equally in that sin.
Think about it for just a minute and see the light start
to shine, governments all of them, need us to fight
among each other, it is called divide and conquer
they use it in war all the time, for if we did finally all begin
to get along…

It is OFFICIAL I have indeed been nominated for Texas Poet Laureate.

The Meek
Have you ever just been stuck somewhere in
a sticky situation needing help or even salvation where nobody at all seems to be around with no
place you can turn? It kind of feels like you are
sitting all alone in the classroom all by yourself taking your exams while failing all of the lessons
that you have learned in life or maybe like you
are trapped like a drowning rat on sinking ship
somewhere in the middle of the night lost on a
foreign ocean that is going down? Maybe even
feel like you are only just a hamster who is caught
in a tiny cage on a spinning wheel while you are
always running around and round getting nowhere?Even waking up in the very early morning in an
unfamiliar place looking all around you and have no
clue while you try remembering how you got there wondering where you really are then screaming out
in a lonely desperation yet making not a sound?
Have you ever felt that the world was closing in
around…
