Shane Koyczan is an award-winning Canadian poet, author and performer who rose to global prominence in 2013 when he published the spoken word Poem project “To This Day”. Koyczan proficiently represents his bullying experience and its shared aims in society through the proficient use of emotionally lyrical techniques to illustrate its emotional results and the view of discovering oneself. Koyczan attract the audience attention into his personal experience by relating his own experience as a foundation on which he discovered self-identity.
Koyczan draws the difference between the real meaning of his self-identity that represents connotations of selfless sacrifice, compassion and humbleness and the perception of others who level social isolation and emotional degradation against him.
By expertly and paradoxically incorporating those who bully and those who experience the bullying as the audience of the poem, Koyczan is able to create an aspirational foundation to his message. Thus, an essential motivation of Koyczan in the poem is to convey the significance of introspection and to ignore the emotionally degrading connotations that are spoken by others and that such is the medium through which the process of discovery and satisfaction is facilitated. Moreover, Koyczan centrally provides the emotional destructiveness of bullying, which underlies his motivation to prevent bullying because it tends totoprevent the process of discovery.
