Poetry exists in your face - Crazy Faces Poetry series begins

A cool inspirational video of "The many faces of me" :)

Your face looks funny on a sunny day

That frown turns into a silly smile

Not showing apparent signs of illness

Nor depression anymore


That happy face just ate something huge maybe

Looking now for something to drink to quench its thirst

The face of wonder

Trying to fill in the blanks on a lonely day sort of face

Shape shifting facial feature

expressing itself with gratitude written all over it


That mean face is back again all in one hot moment

The spontaneous combustion style looking face

Rage scribed across its wrinkled contours with a grin that could melt an Iceberg

A face to remember for a life time due to its sincerity

Now back to the clown face after breaking out into a massive cheek to cheek laugh

New series of Crazy Faces poetry coming soon!

Please stay tuned to catch more of this sort of weird style of poetry. Thanks for caring to give this hub some love, and feel free to comment below if you either enjoyed this poem, or feel it could use some touching up. The author accepts all forms of constructive criticism, and is looking only to improve his word play and delivery if anything at all. Oh and if you enjoyed the video, please let him know if you would like a video poem version of this poem to match the faces.


Note: Anyone who would like to join in on this series with poems of this nature, can also do so, and drop a link in the comment section addressing theirs. That would be super cool, heck make a video poem of it to, now that would be ultra cool to watch and to enjoy as a collaborative poetical effort. (I will add it to a online community known as Poetic Ink that's been online since early January of 2013, which is currently up and running on Facebook and Google+.)

Hi Cloud. You made me smile today with this one. Full of life and joy. When life gets tough you know how to face up to it. Well done.

Mike, the poem is cool and the video was fun to watch. It even had a moral to the story! Or a point to the randomness.. Congrats on your view count. Awesome, Dude!

There is no chance I'm joining in on poetry but I'll be here to watch and read. Love your willingness to step outside the box buddy. Keep it up.

I have taken all my children in front of the mirror many times. Sometimes just to show them that that sulky face looks horrible. But many more times to practice our faces. And especially how it makes us feel when we make them. It is an amazing trans-formative tool. This was great and I look forward to more. Thank you much!!

Thanks @old albion, hey good friend its been a long time since we communicated on here. I was on my Hubpages summer vacation :)

Yup its important to express oneself and get out of the fogged up emotional state and back into the happy joy joy moments. I love all my experiences equally though, because without the low points I wouldn't really have much to cherish in life. This is why I love HP its such a cool place to relate with like minds. Glad you liked my crazy face style poem.

Thank you again @bravewarrior, I'm happy you like my poem.

Yes indeed I try to squeeze in every bit of inspiration I can from my life and into most of my videos there on Youtube. I'm so happy you noticed that factor and element while watching it in its entirety, I kind of sneaked in there :) slick technique right!

Faces can be so interesting - mobile and telling us a lot about how the person inside is feeling.

@Ericdierker, that's cute that your whole family practices faces in the mirror :)

When I was young I done it many times, and I guess now I'm using video powers to do the same thing, but I guess to share the humor of it all with the globe of potential viewers. It so much fun to do, can't wait to come up with more faces themes, I'm so tickled. Hehe!

@rasta1, so glad you liked my wild style of poetic release bro. Thanks for the cool comment up there, that was quite thoughtful of you to do for me.

@BlossomSB, yes indeed faces tell a great deal don't they, and everyone can relate to such a thing as a facial expression. I just wish I could have a smile most of the time throughout the day and have more reason to smile about, until then I will keep working towards that :)

Thanks for the insightful comment, I'll try to repay the favor when I get the time.
