“Show us your face” they demand
But why should I?
It’s my face, my life isn’t it?
It’s not “hiding” my reasons are my own
And that should be enough
Right?

He’s a relaxing voice
A faceless man
With a clever sense of humor
He’s a beautiful person
And that’s enough

The cruelty drags me down
I’m tired of seeing it
I’m tired of the scrutiny
I want to be a cartoon character
Stop looking at me

Why are they so determined to know?
It isn’t important
He should be judged on his own merits
A face shouldn’t matter
He is beautiful anyways
So this is about Cry, he's been kinda down lately and I feel bad about it. So the first and third verses are from his perspective and the second and fourth are from the perspective of the viewers who love him. I decided to kind of address the issue that a lot of people are going on about, which is the idea of what he looks like. More and more people are pushing it and trying to find out, and to be honest it kind of confuses me. Personally I don't care what he looks like he's an incredible person and it shouldn't matter. But that's just me.

I got the idea from another poem about Cry called "No Looking", it's really good. Here's a link if you want to take a look. [link]

Ciao!

Cry is Cry, and we should love him no matter what. Privacy is important--let the man have it. He does so much for us by making videos and cheering certain people up on even their worst days--shouldn't we do the same and let him have what he wants when it revolves around his appearance?

It's what on the inside that counts, and inside Cry is a personality and charisma that just makes me smile. I could care less what he looks like on the outside. I watch him for his voice and laughter and overall amazingness. Not because I'm desperate to see his face.

I hope he sees all the people who say they don't care about his looks and love him for everything else. He deserves it.

He does deserve it. It seems like when I look at all the comments on his videos there's this overwhelming negativity and it makes me sad, because we all love him and he doesn't deserve that kind of abuse.

Exactly. People should just shut up and enjoy him for who he is. If everyone did everything people wanted them to do to change, then no one would be unique. Cry is Cry. Cry is unique. Cry is himself.

Let him be, because that's why we love him.

I completely agree ^^ I honestly don't want to know. For me, Cry's like Daft Punk....represented by something, and that's amazing enough--probably even more so than reality. And who doesn't appreciate mistique? P:

It's not so much us telling him as it is us speculating on something we find to be funny. But you are right, it's entirely up to him.

I understand why Cry doesn't want us to see his face. It's because he's possibly shy or doesn't want all of the the attention in real life. But honestly, I don't care what cry looks like. It makes me actually use my mind to create the perfect image of him.

It lets us imagine him for ourselves in a way, no two people have the same "Cry"

I may not know anything about this Cry person, but I 100% agree that looks in general don't matter. It's what's on the inside that is truly important, regardless of what you look like on the outside.

its just one of those things where you cant decide. you want to see cuz you want to know, but you know what would happen if you did see...poor guy, gettin so harassed about it :/

AndItIsGone Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012
I think you kind of have to make a conscious decision about whether or not it's important to you. I decided that Cry being happy and comfortable with what he's doing is more important than knowing what he looked like. It's a matter of prioritizing.

That's a really valid reason, I don't want to spend my time trying to justify the "why" of it though. I'm glad he doesn't use a facecam, it lets me know Cry as a person without the risk of judging his appearance.

I loved the "No Looking" poem and agree with you both.
They really need to leave him be... A wonderful mystery.

I think it's kind of an issue of respect in a way. By refusing to accept that he doesn't want to show his face they're saying they don't respect him and that is what really bothers me about this.

I'm glad, I honestly was concerned that I would get a lot of people saying that it wasn't that big a deal or trying to justify wanting him to show his face. Let the guy live in peace, he dedicates a lot of his time to us, that's more than enough.

People want to see Cry's face for the same reason people want to look at the Ark of the Covenant.
They would both be freaking amazing to see, but then bad things would happen.

I agree they would be amazing, and if by bad you mean getting attacked by hordes of jealous (and scary) fangirls, then yes, very bad things would happen.
