Shane Koyczan – “You have to believe they were wrong”

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~

My other favourites include:

“The Crickets Have Arthritis”

“Shoulders”

He is also currently in the middle of a tour performing his pieces.
