A friend tweeted me a poem. The tweet said, “You’re into spoken word. How’s this for art.” I’d never heard of Shane Koyczan until the moment I pressed play, and I am better for it. When someone uses the right words to paint emotions in such a way that, even if it isn’t your reality, you feel … it is an amazing experience.

To This Day Project is a poem from the Canadian poet, author and performer to highlight the impact of bullying on children and how this affects their lives into adulthood. A beautifully written poem, poignant, sad and painfully honest.
