Brian discovers a talent for poetry that he now wants to use to encourage people who are facing similar struggles. He describes his writing as something that he can barely contain: “It flows out of me like it’s not supposed to be there.” Flipping through his binder of poems, he explains how he would love to see his poems published into a book: not for personal gain, but as a comfort for others, “People that’s out there suffering, you know...I just (want to) give them some kind of encouragement.”
Su Thompson has been working with Brian to edit and put together his book Poems of Reflection.
