So what if I'm emo?
So what if I cry?

I'm not THAT emotional,
I dont want to die.

So what if I dress in a different style?
There's no need to scream and run for a mile

I dont like to cut and abuse my arm,
I am not depressed,
so why cause self harm?

Could it be that I am just like you?
That I can smile, giggle and laugh along too?

Could it be that I am happy with myself?
It's just that I am not some pretty doll on the shelf.

Could it be that the only reason i dye my hair black;
Is because I dont want to be some barbie in a bimbo girl pack.

These are the reasons, and I'll tell you why,
that I dont look in the mirror and start to cry.

I know Im not perfect,
I'm sure you will agree

But I am so very positive,
as positive as can be

That Im not like you,
Oh dont make me laugh!
I dont spend hours on my make-up's mask

I'm totally self-confident,
Ill smile for all to see.

Because the great thing about being emo,
Is that I am happy, with just being me.

Dont be afraid of who you are.</i>
* 2011 EDIT *
I feel I should be smacking a disclaimer on this saying: "WARNING: WRITTEN BY A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL 4 YEARS AGO"
Please, guys. I understand that the term 'emo' still demands debate and discussion, but slating me for it when I'd written it at 13-14 years old is silly. Having said that, it doesn't mean I am not proud of this Poem, because I am, I just want people to know that I was young and my views have slightly changed now I'm 16. I'm more accepting of everybody so please, enjoy, but don't hate on every emo out there.

I only literally just came up with this after seeing many emo-haters comments on things and this is a little poem for anyone out there who is really having problems with those kinda people out there. Yes, I am alittle bit emo, and I am proud. I dont want to look like a barbie girl thats come out of a manufactured company so here you go, the product of an angry mind lolz! its very short and it you have a problem with this them please comment and tell me just dont flame emos, flame me ok? alright please read on if you havent or thank you for reading if you have bye! :P
