    Has anyone has ever told you

    That what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger....?

    See the things which bruise

    Can continue to worsen

    BUT they not have to rob you

    Of who you are as a person

    Poem written below:

     

    Has anyone has ever told you -

    That what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger?

     

    That even if life

    Which occasionally

    Cuts like a knife

    Will make you stronger

    If you simply endure the impossible

    Suffer...Survive…

    Continue to strive

    Even though you are struggling to feel alive

     

    See what doesn’t kill you can...

    Hurt, Harm and Humiliate

    Discourage, Disappoint and Depress

     

    What doesn’t kill you can inflict wounds

    Which can become infected

    Forged through bitterness

    Unforgiveness can fester

     

    After enduring rejection

    Hatred can become a dysfunctional home

    that offers comfort and protection

    But in reality,

    Is cold, divided,

    And closed to connection

     

    That what doesn’t kill you can

    Tower over your freedom

    Disempower and dismember your dreams

    But it does not have to devour your hope.

     

    What doesn’t kill you can transform

    If you let go of anger, agony and outrage

    And consciously choose not the live in that cage

    Persisting and Preserving beyond the past

     

    See what doesn’t kill you can make you steadfast, determined

    Unshakable, unwavering,

    Unmistakably fearless

    In the midst of uncertain and unknown

     

    That what doesn’t kill you can make you strengthen

    If you consciously choose

    For it to make you a stronger person

    And know that the things which bruise

    Can continue to worsen

    Do not have to rob you

    Of who you are as a person

     

    That what doesn’t kill you can make you stronger

    The things that haunt and drain you,

    Can change who you are for the better

    If you go against the grain

    And begin to see that purpose can emerge from pain

     

    What doesn’t kill you can give you

    The courage to care

    To have compassion

    When many wouldn’t dare

    When others judge and despair What doesn’t kill you may tear you apart

    Convince you that it got you nowhere

    It has in fact it did impart

    Knowledge and wisdom

    Permanently altering your heart

    Making you more compassionate

    Alive, alert and aware

    Empowering you to deeply care

     

    See what doesn’t kill you can transform

    Giving you insights you have never had before

    Building a bridge to another person’s pain

    What doesn’t kill you can help you to gain

    A hope that nurtures and sustains

    Which can be shared with others who are in despair

    When everyone else says that their life is beyond repair

     

    So if anyone ever tells you

    That what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger...

    Know that the longer you endure

    What is fractured, broken and flawed

    Can transform who you are as a person

     

    That the things which bruise and continue to worsen

    Do not have to rob you

    Of who you are as a person

  • NEW YORK CITY | Spoken Word Poetry | Sno...
    by Poetical Tv on April 14, 2017 at 10:03 AM

    New York City. Spoken word poetry set to New York in the snow photography by Vivienne Gucwa (words + images mine). Snow photography is how I express the raw, emotional feeling of nostalgia tinged with loneliness and longing. In a city of millions, feeling lonely and feeling isolation is an unspoken visceral state of being. The nostalgic aspect of NYC in the snow at night brings all of these feelings to the surface.

     

    This is an excerpt of the poetry, prose, and photography from my 2nd photography book called New York in the Snow releasing in September of 2017.

     

    My New York in the Snow book here: http://amzn.to/2oUFZNa

     

    My book has all the locations, camera settings, and cameras used detailed under every photo (more photos than in this video) as well as more prose and writing.

     

    I have been photographing every snowstorm in NYC for the last 6 years. In this video I attempt to explain why I walk up to 8 miles at a time through blizzards, nor'easters, and all sorts of snowstorms by revealing the themes I explore with my New York City photography of the snow. This spoken word video deals a range of emotions including: loneliness, isolation, anxiety, longing, and nostalgia.
