Biography of Brian Hinckley

Brian Hinckley poet

I started writing early in my life. Most of my works have been short stories, but I have drifted more to the poetic in recent years. I fell in love with poetry thanks to a professor I had in high school many moons ago.

I am currently a student at Buffalo State College in Buffalo, NY, studying Literature. Writing, which as of right now, is a labor of love for me. I write for myself and not for others. I love what others say of my writing and thank them for their comments, but I know many writers and poets with much more talent than I.

I have one sister, Jennifer. Of course, I also have my little love, my terrier, Ozzie. I am a big fan of the National Hockey League's New York Islanders as well. I have a dream to visit Ireland again and am seriously considering moving there after I finish my Masters.

Why Do You Bother?

Why do you bother?
Am I some project
some charity case?
Do I make you feel
as If you are doing something good?

Why do you bother?
I am not perfect
not in any way.
