Shane Koyczan is a Spoken Word Artist, Poet, and Author from Penticton, B.C., Canada. His works and collaborations are absolutely breathtaking and unique. He has been called “[p]owerfully engaging and authentic in attitude,” (cited from his Website), which can be clearly seen through his literary artworks.
One of my favourite pieces from his collection is titled:
“To This Day,”
(Live Version on “TED”)
“If you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer, because there’s something inside you that told you to keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.”
~Shane Koyczan, To This Day~
