741 (who?)
I wear striped socks.
I listen to Lostprophets.
I sometimes wear a black tie with tiny little sculls on it.
I read books.
I’m not too pretty.
I eat chocolate when I’m depressed.  
I sometimes feel as though
The only right thing to do
Is to crawl up inside of me and die
With Tori Amos in the background.
Am I Emo enough for you?

You wear everything striped lately.
You lined up your soul in black and white.
You hate pink.
You say that you hate it when people label you.

Then maybe you should quit labelling yourself?
Maybe you should stop looking down on girls because they wear pink.
Maybe they’re being themselves as well.
You don’t know if
Ever wanna crawl up in themselves and die.
You don’t know them anymore than you know yourself.
Maybe they also cut themselves and hate their life?
Maybe they listen to Lostprophets too.

And by the way;
I know your little secret.
You are not depressed.
The earth doesn’t rotate around you.
Your parents _do_ love you.
You _are_ special and unique
Along with every blond, pink-wearing girl out there.
You’re not more Emo then me.
You’re fifteen.
So... Just something I wrote in a few minutes... I tried to put it in scraps, but the stupid thing wouldn't let me! DX
I haven't really got the whole Emo-consept.

A guy in my class found a small, sharp metal-thingy in class once, and he said: "Hey! Let's play Emo." And I answered: "...or not..." And he replied: "Well you _are_ Emo, so you do it all the time." :XD:
I was wearing a black tie with tiny sculls on it that day. Obviously, Black tie = hardcore Emo. XD

Comments and stuff are welcome! :)
(Please remember that this was supposed to go on scraps.)

The funny thing is, my dad thinks it's hilarious to call me "emo" because he says I never get excited or happy about anything. He even says that because I am supposedly emo, I can't be happy or excited. I don't think he remembers my wannabe emo phase. That was probably one of my worst life choices. I don't like being labeled. I'm me.

Excellent poem.

i'm in between emo and hyper like a mix of naruto uzumaki and sasuke uchiha. please don't hate me for saying such but not all emos are that way. there are different kinds of emo, like me. i don't cut, which i find ridiculous that you need to cut to be emo, i don't hate the world, just some people in it. i label myself as a hyper emo but that's just because i'm weird and wanted a name for myself. by the way this is actually accurate for about half the people i know. emo is pretty much a thing that everyone wants to be now a days 'cause it's the easy way out. emos are people just looking for attention, including myself, because the people we want attention from won't give us any. us saying we're emo is us saying we want your attention. emo is a part of all of our lives. emo is short for emotional after all.

This is something I've always said.
All the little 12 year old "depressed" scene and emo kids think that the whole world is against them, that it's them versus everyone else. (The"preps", because obviously everyone who doesn't wanna dress in all black is a prep)
They act like they're the only kids who get stereotyped and then get incredibly defensive when you try and say that something they're saying about you isn't true. f you're not "scene/emo", you must hate everyone who is in their minds.
Plenty of kids will read this comment and just assume I'm another "emo" hater who doesn't understand, who has never been through it.
Please, I went through that stage when I was 12-13. I know how it is, I lived it, I felt the same things. If I was to read this comment when I was 13, I would've been enraged.
What I'm saying is, its just a phase guys. I promise, you're going to look back on this and think, "What the hell was wrong with me?"
This isn't who you are, I promise. Stop acting like your stereotype is better than everyone else's.

Not saying I'm emo but I don't say I'm the happiest, especially when I find myself actually enjoying the sad decrepit places with the lengthy history.... However I'm definitely not saying I'm not a little emo ... But I do realize the world doesn't hate me and that maybe the girl who loves pink does often want to kill herself but maybe if youve seen what I've seen you'd have I little different perspective... You'd probably love the moon, fire, lost decrepit places, gemstones, psychology, and probably hate the bragging, excluding people, one look and haters that I have talked to and come to know... I do smile but I do also feel like I'm stuck in a lifeless hole... I feel accepted too easily and also too easily ignored and put off to the side like a present I didn't.. ER... Or you didn't want.... I hate being too shy and hate being overcrowded... And I'm not this way by choice because it wasn't me who wanted me to not talk to the other kids in the neighborhood and not let my friends visit my house... I just often feel cornered and often discarded and often ridiculed by the irrational intruder, whom I'd never call "stepfather" and tired of being the demon of the house whom I became known as because that is what the intruder named me.... I'm tired of being called alien and adopted by my own family but maybe that would've been better if I were because then I'd have a rational reason to feel like an outsider to even my society I live in...

Like said before I know I'm not emo but I really do have emotional issues do to my parents divorce so call me a true emo if some may like....
I just feel like I'm not even human even if I try... Because I do know others think I'm not even human either... Such as two of my best friends have told me... And such as one "friend" sneers at me.. 

...I did only ever once hurt myself once purposely because I just couldn't stop tremouring and had to make myself quit so I could regathering my thoughts and just stop... 

Sorry for not being able to scrap because I know how that is...
Apologies for maybe sounding aggressive or offending as well...
Just wanted maybe give you another perspective that maybe other people labeled as emo may just feel like a cornered outsider human labeled demon or creature like me...

I am labeled emo by everyone at school, except my friends. Okay, I wear black your point? XD goth is one thing, but emo? Really people? I don't have scars on my arms do i? And all people have a faze in life when they want to curl up and die inside, even the happiest of people will feel that way. This...poem Is true. ^-^
