Bruises & Broken Teeth, Hope & New Beginnings... : The Lift | Brian@GrowthWorks

Bruises & Broken Teeth, Hope & New Beginnings...

by Brian McDermott on 03/10/13

Shane Koyczan is, as he puts it, a graduate of the class of "We Made It."

Early on in this inspirational, funny but haunting 12-minute TED video of his spoken-word poem To This Day, he asks, "What made my dreams so easy to dismiss?" He rebounds with, "Like a boomerang, the thing I loved came back to me." And he talks about his quest for getting through each broken promise, and arriving finally, and confidently at, "This is who I am." And looking continuously in life for things of beauty to outbalance the pain.

Watch... and later you can read the full poem here on Shane's website.
