The Battle Lost: Ryder's Birth
Six years ago my life was changed in ways I will never fully understand a serious of events triggered a chain of disaster that caused the deepest sadness I will ever know, causing me to give up for the first time in my life. But from that day forward I will always believe in God, his angels, and heaven and hell, up to then, I was not a believer, the sights the smells, the taste is something I can never forget, then I woke up and started writing and I have yet to stop.

An Epic Poetry adventure that takes you on an emotional journey into one mans epic battle against the evil's of addiction and the search and fight for his son Ryder who 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 until
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 he would soon
appear yet she kept getting higher and the baby
came early the little boy's name was Ryder.
