Spoken word poet speaks out on bullying
Shane Koyczan is a spoken word poet. In this animated video, he recites his poem called “To This Day,” which is about bullying. I’ve heard some of his poetry, but I haven’t seen anything like this done, and I absolutely loved this.
I think this video is very compelling and beautifully done. His poetry gets a point across, while the visual aspect of this is so creative and artistic, and compliments his own art of spoken word poetry. This combination makes for one amazing project. It tells a story through two forms of mediums: video and audio.
The article on Mashable says, “The video is haunting and beautiful, powerful and startling, sad and relatable. And, above all, the video and poetry will reshape your views on name calling, harassment and pain, encouraging you to confront and end the cycle of hatred and bullying kids face.”
This video has the power to incite change and make people realize how serious of an issue violence is.
