In Your Face

In Your Face

My style’s described by many folks
As being “In Your Face”
I’ve found when trying to convey
A point, it’s the best place

To focus all your energy
When expressing a thought
A point related far away
Is one that’s made for naught

But when you get right in their face
And grab their full attention
When it’s right up close, it seems
To get full comprehension

When the world’s distractions seem
So far away compared
To the thing that’s “In Your Face”
And leaves you feeling scared

Or awkward or uncomfortable
That’s when it will get through
Only then does the concept
Start to hit home with you

It’s why e-mails are ignored
And texts get no response
Why phone calls are often greeted
With aloof nonchalance

But when intense eye contact’s made
And full attention’s aimed
Squarely right between their eyes
And stated unashamed

The listener cannot ignore
The passion of what’s said
That’s why most effective points
Are made close to your head

    I have been called “Intrusive” I had to look it up… it is when rock penetrates rock, such as granite, I didn’t think that was a bad thing (grin)

      “Intrusive”…I like the sound of that. It sounds very bold. Courageous. Warrior-like. 🙂

    I think its a matter of opinion. Loved the poem very cleverly written. 😉

      Absolutely. The timid, shy and afraid often interpret behavior that isn’t like their own as too “intense,” “intrusive” or “in your face.” It’s all a matter of perspective.

    I’m a fan of in your face, I’m a fan of direct once I figure out just what it is I need to tackle in the first place. Some things sneak up on us in life and we feel it but then it hits and you’re like, Oooh… now I have to handle this.

    This is nice too 🙂
