Damn Emo Kids
unknown

I can't believe none of you idiots have figured out that this is a joke yet.
PS: You talk too much.


It takes many shallow insults
 1
Years of lousy social life
 2
Slitting empty wrists with razorblades
 3
And being rejected from numerous cafeteria tables
 4
Before deciding to drown yourself in your pint of luncheon milk.

wtf is luncheon milk anyway
 — unknown

Hate is love's counter leech. In some perturbing fashion, you allow this small insult to absorb too numerous your brain waves and others' alike. Only for the lack of Emo kids frequenting this site did you manage a spot on the Top Rated list.
I usually don't say these things, but more and more do I find the respective reputative hiarchy on this site ever more prominent. I give you a 1 only because it's the smallest number I can allot for the lowest piece of poetry available without not having cared at all to remark. Enjoy your reign as the son whom father hated, yet loved simply because he was his last living.
(Does my disgust for awfully structured word come through in this?)
 — Eschatologic

Then the obligatory comments(aka ass-kissing, aka ego-stroking, aka mindless praise) are ever present and I feel...inconsequential, with my big words and silly perspective.

*rubs your shoulder from all the hefty pats
 — Eschatologic

This is a really good poem, but i get the impression it is rather critical of other peoples poems. I like the way it speaks of the turmoil that everybody but the "popular" peolpe feel and go through in high school. I think you should try to use some punctuation to make it flow better but if it were my poem i wouldn't change it at all. Very Good
 — ForeverAlone

drown yourself in your pint of luncheon milk

one of my favorite lines
ever
 — Bloodfetish

bitch you fucking suck don't hate on sumthing you have no idea about, emo isn't a lable for kids who slice their wrist. its a type of fucking music and sure kids who cut do listen to this music but that doesn't mean that all emo kids fucking cut and kill them selfs, its ass holes like you that make them that way in the first place
 — unknown

i am still loving this. popped in as anonymous ... and here it is as a random poem. gad ... such brilliance!

Damn those emo kids!
 — Mr_Private

are the 5 users who considered this poem a favorite all fake accounts? or just stupid?
 — username

maybe they are 14 year old or an idiot, since that is what it means to be punk
 — BabblinJoe

Perhaps instead of being "stupid," they are the special ones in the know.  
 — Isabelle5

As one of the five, username, I can say absolutely that I am a fake account. I do not really exist. I am a figment.

Now go drink your milk.
 — Bloodfetish

hahaha... o dear.



this... is pretty much sweet and pretty much perfectly descriptive of many of the people i go to school with.

"don't fall over and cut your wrists!!!"


i hate people and their stupidity.
 — inutile

"...being rejected from numerous cafeteria tables  
Before deciding to drown yourself in your pint of luncheon milk."

I'll admit, that's funny. I think though, instead of directing this at "badly-written poser's emo poems", you should speak to teenagers in general (because we all know, that deep down, we're Emo Kids too."
 — Ariel

Serious editing has made this a much better poem.
 — alicedark

man this is sooo great, one of my favs now
 — tearsofblood

i love hillary muff
 — unknown

I fucking hate this poem!! There are people who are not 'emo' who go through hell through no fault of there own and you have catagorized them all as emo. slitting empty wrists - there is purpose and meaning behind such an action - not empty. Just learn to laugh at yourselves. How can people laugh at themsleves when they are laughed at - this disgusts me to the highest level.
 — unknown

EMO SUX BALLS MY BALLS HOW ABOUT WE JUST GO SLIT OUR WRIST AND COLOUR THE SKY RED1?!?!?!?
 — unknown

Second unknown above me:
Learn to lave at yourself, you self-righteous, pretentious bastard.

you ppl dont even put poems....G0SH what the fuxk is the point of this website then?!!!
 — unknown

Just how big are you Shorty?
 — larrylark

is simple but good
 — pinktedy

As a poem, it's clever and I like it.

As a piece of social commentary, it has some truth.

Otherwise, it is almost offensive. Not because I like posers, or call myself emo, but just because I don't think it is for us, the anonymous, to judge whether someone's problems and their reaction to those problems (in this case, poetry) are sincere, or 'proper' or truly emotional. It is wise not to trivialise the pain in some people's lives. Even if you do not consider it to be pain at all.

Interesting work though, thank you for sharing.

You capitalised every line. Tsk tsk.

Other than that, beautiful. -Adds to favourites.-

 — teo_omega11

First off not all emo kids cut themselves.  Secondly who are you to care for other peoples problems?  Emo is genre of music not a fucking label so you jockass people can make fun of people.  Why do you think emo people cut themselves?  Maybe because assholes like people supporting the poem give them shit.  Life is life, people choose how to live.

ROSES ARE RED,          
PICKLES ARE GREEN,
I LIKE YOUR LEGS AND WHATS IN BETWEEN,
KISSING IS A HABBIT,
FUCKING IS A GAME,
GUYS GET ALL THE PLESURE,
GIRLS GET ALL THE PAIN,
GUYS SAY I LOVE YOU,
YOU BELIVE ITS TRUE,
BUT WHEN YOUR TUMMY STARTS TO STARTS TO SWELL HE SAYS TO HELL WITH YOU,
10 MINUTES OF PLESURE,
9 MONTHS OF PAIN,
3 DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL,
A BABY WITHOUT A NAME,
A BASTARD,
THE MOTHER IS A WHORE,
AND THIS NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPEND IF THE CONDOM WOULDNT HAVE TORN

What is an emo kid? Seriously I don't know. Is it what we call moshers in the uk? Kids who wear black clothes and make up, listen to head banging music and get picked on by the "normal" kids?
 — marieF

Emo means emotional, overly gushing in love, in pain, in angst.  Woe is me, etc.  Nothing to do with clothing.  We call those Goth, as far as I know.
 — Isabelle5

We call them goth as well actually. Thanks for clearing that up for me, I believe I was a severely emo kid once too. Don't tell anyone.
 — marieF

This could be much better if it was expanded a bit.
 — Mithrandir

I think you are a complete jerk. You are so snobby in your attitude towards others.  Those "emo" kids that you talk about, maybe they want someone to just break out of their shell and be nice to them for once.  Maybe it's YOU who is missing out on a chance of a lifetime.  Being friendly to someone can really make the difference.  
 — unknown

We all start off as emo kids!  We think we invented love and pain!  I remember my Drama teacher pretending to vomit on all the dark, gloomy plays we attempted when we first wrote screenplays.  lol
 — Isabelle5

love line five.

Emo and goth is not the same.

This author of this work has suceeded. Twelfty billion people have had an argument over his poem.

 — colormetink

Emo isnt just were ppl slit there wrists its something they do because they mite not fit in a group any were eles because people are harsh and not everyone accepts you because your unique they normally accept you because your all the same and Emo people are emo because its the only way of getting rid of the feel of been rejected and for all ur FYI's Emo meens emotional NOT SUICIDEL just cause your emo it does not meen you want to kill your self yes you get  the odd one but that is the odd one not EVERYONE so you people that have a problem with Emo's are the ones that make them angrey and make them want to hurt them selfs more  !!!!!!!!!!!!  So before talking about them badley think about what your saying and is it going to make the sittuation worse and yes it probably is if it is somthing bad to say!!!! All you people that say ot does well look at the people that were Emo once and how they are now i was emo wen i was younger and trust me i wasnt suicidel its a phase that nearlly every teenager will go through i no my sister is and all you people that diss them you should all shut your mouth its not easy been rejected so much !! more so people you no but pople you dont know you start to think am i worthless and do i deserv a life and all you Emo people YES you do deserve a life !!!!!!!!!!!  
 — unknown

thats true it is something to hide pain and rejection and i was Emo and so was my boyfriend that i have now i did think about killing my self but was that the right way to go no it wasnt the right way to go was with life the corse of life and the best way to get over been emo is dont kill your self it is a phase it will pass and just cos you are Emo does not make you a bad person !!!!
 — unknown

ppl just dont understand what we're going thru
 — unknown

You have no heart, sick minded a**hole.You only think of your own amusement and not about the pain others have.

Honesly, kind of shitty for a poem.  Pissing alot of people off and getting lots of 'emos' who bitch and moan about nothing online with no typing skills to scream at the other people who can't type in hate 'emos' was your goal, I assume, and you have done such.

I hate 'emos' like I hate 'punks.'  They, in general, are vindictive fucks who decided to be cool and indie and wear BLACK ("daring me!") and who don't know what they think they are representing.  In the 80's emo music was a hybrid of punk and metal with a dab of goth and romantic ideals with lyrics that could be deep and talk about heartbreak without sounding like a 12 year old.  Because of the companies that have realised today's youth isn't making up their own styles as much as reviving old ones and completely distroying their foundation who, this new bullshit is flying around.  Teenyboppers who don't know what to do wtih themselves because GASP they don't feel like they fit in or GASP their crush doesn't like them because OF COURSE they are the only ones who feel this way in this time of their life, find this shit, lap it up, dress the part to fit in with all the other shallow bastards.  

These people who don't have any issues to bitch about make showing emotion seem weak and attention whoring.

As for you, poem writer, you think that you are better than these 'emos' because you are not like them and all their ways.  Therefore you think you have a right to poke fun at them and what you think to be their shitty poems with your shitty poems.  This puts you at their level.  Trust me, you and your poems are not above the 'emo.'
 — unknown

you people on this site aren't very bright are you?
this is a joke.
even the author says that it is a joke.
so "emo" kids. calm yourselves.
learn to laugh at yourself.
 — sodapop

yummy i love to eat emo kids up.
 — unknown

Anyone who is proud of being 'emo' has no idea what it means.

A complete inability to type normally does not constitute emotional. Neither does cutting your wrists.

Faux-emos: take a deep breath and a long hard look at yourselves.

 — musicwords

Ha
Wtf?

 — Food4DSoul

lables are just plane gay!! no one is emo no one is goth no one is punk no one is ganster no one is pimp no one is anything.they are just themselves.i am who i am .thats all there is to it.you are who you are ,you cant help but be you and the people who pretend to be wat they're not need to be true to themselves and analyze and think things true.i must admit i was emo.i labled myself as emo and then i realized that it was just stupid.it was dumb.so yeah thats all i had to say.this poem just makes me wonder why people are so quick to judge.it makes me sad.
 — bloodstained

haha emo kids are pathetic, get over yourself and live life
 — unknown

All of those 'labels' you mentioned are also styles.  All the author was trying to point out is that cutting yourself and making a huge deal out of petty things like where you sit at a cafeteria table and insults from your peers is just stupid, melodramatic, and pointles.

Two roads... split off from here,
and my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.
I wanted to be that breath of fresh air,
When everything smelled so insincere.
But this taste still lingers in my mouth,
Deceit has ways of sticking around.
And I'm ready to disappear,
Vacation seems far, seems far from here.
Note to self: I miss you terribly.
This is what we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, back to me, to me.
I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene,
I need to break the routine.
Two roads... split off from here,
and my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.
Which part of me is lost? I feel so close, and yet I am so far.
That is a EMO POEM BITCHES LOL im emo
 — unknown

your mother must be so proud
 — TheO1dCrow

and  i belive that 'emos' can be very sweet and poetic most of the time
 — unknown

i like it but dont be so hard on emos cause i have several friends like that
 — demonic_666

why not? lets give them something worth being emo about. fuck them.
 — TheO1dCrow

Emo kids want to be the centre of attention. Some kids fall over and cry like it's the end of the world. Others just get back up and keep on going.

Maybe some people just like the feeling of being depressed. :/
 — DeathShards

well if they're gonna be bitchy and whiny all the time, they ought to have good reason, thats why i say we ought to persecute them. you know, beat the shit out of them, pick them last in pe, offer know comfort on the site,... this way they will either toughen up or win a darwin award. either way we win
 — TheO1dCrow

Nice work.. Good Job!!!
 — TwixMix12

Right you people that say I hate Emo's there all attaention seekers How the hell are they attention seekers they stay as far away from people as possible i once Bullied an Emo for what they looked like and how depressed they were and because they didnt fit in but now i realise people like me was the reason they were like that and i think UR ALL FUCKING BASTARDS who do call them names bully them abuse them and i think you should leave them alone let them get on with there lifes maybe then theyll get away from you arrogant BITCH'S

Luv the Hypocrit !       (i dnt care how you spell it)
 — unknown

ok thats nice....DEATH TO THE EMOS!!!!
 — TheO1dCrow

ok ppl have kinda drifted away from the poem i agree that u shouldnt say u hate all emo's. have u met every emo ??? Just because they choose to label themselves doesnt mean they are all the same.
 — kat14

you're fucking pretty.
 — thirdeyris

emo - short for "emotional." Emo is a broad title that covers a lot of different styles of emotionally-charged punk rock.

As for the poem or lack there-of, I have to agree with many of the others about line 5.

If i had a pint of luncheon milk, i woulda shot it out of my nostrils when i got to that line.
 — defaultuser

i think u have no idea wat some people go through when they are teenagers as you were one of those people that just had it easy.... many friends, perfect grades and your family loved you..... but life isnt always that perfect
 — unknown

> but life isnt always that perfect

It can be, but never for you. Now get over it.
 — unknown

and just who the fuck are you to complain. there are always people that would kill to be where you are. fuck there are people that would be bragging if they had what you did. fuck you. no one in this country ought to complain.

oh and im not complaining, simply stating the facts. and telling mr life aint perfect to fuck himself, but mostly stating the facts.
 — TheO1dCrow

You don't have to be loud and annoying to be an attention seeker. You just have to do a crazy stunt like cut your wrist. You don't even have to do that. Just being known that they're the quiet, depressed kid makes them happy.
 — unknown

ok i no u probz dont wana hear this but i thnk its really reallyt deep and me being emo i totaly dnt relate to that n all but yeah.. i kinda get it... i love being emo.. its my life but u guys dnt really seem to like it too much.. emo isnt bad... its not all about slitting ur writs.. emo is mor then tat...
 — unknown

i really like this...it shows the deepness fo the emo kids lives..... every emo child tries to kill themselves in a carton of milk
 — Imperfect

look to all you fucking assholes out there let me tell you something about being emo basically we are a race of very different individuals...do not get us mixed up with GOTH, SCENE, PREP, PUNK or anything other than EMO, got it? we see the world as it really is, beautiful but ruined, mainly by humanity, sorry folks, its true...we know that life is cold, dark, scary and threatening, but we also know that love is the most important thing in the world, whether it is friends, family or a relationship, we take relationships very seriously as we are quite possibly the worlds most loving people. its the popular belief that evrey emo is gay and/or cuts their wrists...NOT TRUE! sure, emo guys love to make out, and we sure do love to see them making out! but it doesnt necesarily mean that they are gay, although there is nothing wrong if they are (if you think so youre a homophobe) as, as i just said, we believe that love is the most important thing in life, in any way shape or form. also, emo kids do not cut thier wrists, well ok some do but let me make myself clear IT IS NOT COMPULSARY, OK! oh, and emo kids dont have to like emo music, i do and lots of others do, but we also have a wide range of tastes, from club (not me but i know people), to punk, to hardcore, to goth etc etc etc...real emo kids are not emo coz its cool, we are emo coz we are emo!!!
the only reason some 'emos' r depressed and suicidal is ecause all u jerks make us like that! us 'emos' hang out with other 'emos' because they dont fucking judge people they accept you for who u r and if u ever stop and look at us 4 1ce around our friends ull c that we are usually smiling, laughing and having fun because for 1ce we fit in! all you fucking cunts dont even know what its like to have a hard life ur life has probably been perfect like sum1 else said, good grades lots of friend loving family. 'emos' on the other hand have familys that fight and abuse them(trrust me i would know bcos my family fights and abuses me constantly!) we get rejected by so many people we dont know where else to go or what to do with our life therefore the only people we fit in with are other 'emos'. so to all the fuckers out there that think they know what us 'emos' go through..newsflash!: you have no fucking idea of half of the things that go on in our lives! so FUCK YOU, YOU ALWAYS CRITICISE US FOR WHO WE ARE.. LOOK AT URSELF! LOOK WHAT YOU DO TO US! UR THE ONES THAT ARE THE LOOSERS! NOT US 'EMOS'!!!- x--[Srah]--x
 — unknown

I love this:

"we also know that love is the most important thing in the world, whether it is friends, family or a relationship, we take relationships very seriously as we are quite possibly the worlds most loving people"

and then, this:

"all you fucking cunts dont even know what its like to have a hard life"

followed by:

"FUCK YOU, YOU ALWAYS CRITICISE US FOR WHO WE ARE.. LOOK AT URSELF! LOOK WHAT YOU DO TO US! UR THE ONES THAT ARE THE LOOSERS! NOT US 'EMOS'!!!"

People.  What are we gonna do with 'em?  :D
 — unknown

What the hell is an Emo? More importantly, you people are nuts!
 — unknown

ALL u DICK HEAD JUST PISS OFF AND LEAVE US ALONE!!! No need ta make us all feel even more down.. anyway WHaT THE HELLS WRONG WITH BEING EMO!!! ?

Sam... :(

Oh, man, this is hilarious! It's so simple, and yet so effective. I know you don't need to hear it again, but the last line is perfection. Brilliant.

  When can we end?

When you’re depressed
Suicide is like euthanasia of the mind.
Its had to find time,
To enjoy the ‘fun’ things in life.
I strike the blade down
With blooded hands,
Why does it have to be like this
Can’t I be where all the dead men hide?

Sleep is an antidote
Yet achieving it would be a crime,
It’s too hard to close your eyes-
And block all the terror
From entering our hopeless minds.
Sleep is a cure, we crave for more
But, we never succeed in
Fulfilling that need.

Because, it is to late,
I am speaking to you from behind
An empty grave…….

My body has gone, been taken to a different world-
A world way you start afresh, with new arms
And with a new, better human race.

I haven't read half these fucking comments and I doubt I ever will.
The poem is a joke, people. Stop taking it so fucking seriously. There's no deeper meaning or anything.

PS: It's a known fact that any current wrist-cutter sucks at writing poetry. I think it's the endorphins or some shit.

 — unknown

very splendid poem i can relate to this alot!!
 — unknown

The  knife slide across as I let out a scream
This is a happy place to me
I begin to think of thoughts of suicide
But even if I die my soul will reside
I cry in tears of self pity
The mood I’m in is kinda S**tty
I graze my wrist with broken glass
I start to think about the past
As I cut my wrist once more
I fall to my knees and slowly mourn
I brush the black hair from my eyes
And I let out my last weep my last cry

haha.. loser. what is a pint anyways?

You wrote this knowing it would provoke these kinda of reactions. For that I suppose you give yourself credit for it, but in a way, this is just a branch of racism.

Okay, guys, TheO1dCrow is no longer on the site.  And, no, this isn't a branch off of racism.  Racism has to do with RACE.  This may be prejudice, but not racism.

Uhm....is this a poem, or a forum? it seems that this whole thing has gone off on a bit of a tangent.

...But at the same time, it's rather funny to watch you kiddies bickering over nonsense and middle school treds, so....

Who the hell cares if this is a joke, or if this is rude, or what the fuck ever.  It's not like reading it is killing anybody, and if it bothers you that much DON'T READ IT.  The author has been banned from the site, Merry Christmas to you all, not just shut up already.

This is what stereotypes have to say about emo's

If your ( emo ) you might as well go slit your wrist!!!

What the f*ck is that shit all about!!! where just normal people with our own style!!!

haah! emo kids!!
 — popyelle

I'm gonna have to agree with the previous unknown. Seriously, stop the emo-bashing bandwagon and find a more worthy target of criticsims. Like, oh say...the poetry itself?
 — unknown

Well, lets see here. After reading the variety of comments left by both the insulted and the humoured...
I would have to say that this is funny... Not because it 'insults the emo kids' but more because it plays off of the popular stereotype of now... Many people have forgotten the fact that they make fun of other people's style. I'm not emo myself, but i have emo friends, and they would get a good kick out of this!
Fashion is a fashion is a fashion... Maybe when you're old and wrinkley, or you've grown past your choice of style, or just another fad comes along (i know you're out there wannabe emo's...) you can look back on this and say "Dang, i remember! This is pretty funny now that i think of it"
To any of the people who read this, and are insulted, let me just remind you that life is more simple once you learn to laugh at yourself every once in a while!
 — unknown

what's the need to fit in a group? emo, punk, prep or what have you?

if you're truly individualistic would not you be, well, you? -- in other words, there would not be a bunch of other people from all over doing, acting, or dressing in the same fashion as you.

it's impossible to be original.
 — unknown

theres nothing rong with slitting your wrists..
 — unknown

you know whats funny?
the fact the emo's are stereotyped for writing poetry (among many other things)
and this is a poetry site
yet almost everyone hates emo's
wait
emo's hate themselves don't they?
so is it possible that most of these people are emo themselves...
interesting
i don't get along with emo's but i wouldn't say i hate them all... some people are crazy for a reason.

I LOVE IT! I'm a high school teacher and I think this poem is hysterical and poignant.

ok siriously emo kid are the coolest people that i know because they see life for what it is and they know that the world is crul dark place and so what if slits there wrists thyats there business so what if two guys want to make no big deal and you the steryotype that emo girls are all dykes is just wrong and another thing i have friends who are emo i dated an emo guy and you know what he was the only guy i eber dated that realy cared about me and he does to this day and you know what he said to me the day i had to move he said he would wait for me to be his agian and then 3 weeks ago i seen him and i went to a party with him and he asked me if i had a boy friend i siad no (im gonna go back out with him) SO NEXT TIME THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR GONNA SAY BEFOR U SAY IT AND SHUT UP ABOUTY WHO WHO NOT IT DRIVING UP THE WALL AND FOR UR INFORMATION EMO IS TYPE OF MUSIC I THINK IT SUB GENRE OF PUNK BUT IM NOT SURE BUT LEAVE EMO KIDS ALONE
 — Dead_Freak

An emo, in essence, is a drama queen.

They bitch and moan about their void of a life yet they are middle class to upper class with loving parents and a stable familial structure.

Emo is stupidity just as being a Jock is stupidity, you are a fake to yourself and you are a conformist.

Getting picked on in school is not a real problem (I would know).

Being molested, being raped, having your parents die, living in a broken home, getting beat by your alcoholic dad, getting addicted to cocaine by your drug addict mother....those are but a few of the real problems in this world.


But this poem is a fucking joke, good stuff.
 — pra3torian

yo dude im emo yea yea so how ya doin
 — unknown

bitch you fucking suck don't hate on sumthing you have no idea about, emo isn't a lable for kids who slice their wrist. its a type of fucking music and sure kids who cut do listen to this music but that doesn't mean that all emo kids fucking cut and kill them selfs, its ass holes like you that make them that way in the first place
— unknown

What ever bitch fuck who put the up is a punk. Yo we dont make you fucking emo kids do anything its you that think we are always making you feel so emo. Its not our falt your all bitches. Put it this way you have it better than loads of kids all over the world. No one cares about you unhappyness. Kids in africa are dying because their parents have aids and they still are happy and smile and you are bitching over here because no one likes you. why dont you just shut the hell up and go make a differnce to the world.

Okay who is the bitch that put this up!!!The world is a beautiful palce you emo kids just choke out all that happyness from it. Life is what you make it and to be real you guys are makeing it a dark place. And cutting youself is just stupid because you makeing youself feel pain and it without reason at all. If this world sucks so much do us all a favor and go kill yourselves. But for me i have much to live for and i thik the world is a beautiful place.
 — unknown

Uhmmmmm............ Dead_Freak, i would like to let you know that nobody is going to take you or your comment to awefully serious... Honestly, its a long run on sentence that basically has nothing but whining and complaining.

Just because somebody decides to write a poem about emo-kids, its all of a sudden a sin to comment on genres and stereotypes??
You "emokids" who are commenting and getting your panties in bunch have to remember one thing... You don't complain when people make fun of goths, punks, preps, gangsters, nerds, or any other stereotype. So why don't you open your eyes a little, maybe wipe away some of that eyeliner and tears, and realize that this is life. Everybody makes fun of everybody and its never going to stop. The world isn't dark and cruel and ugly. Your life and your world is what you make it.
I love my life... And i grew up in a camper with 4 other people and 2 dogs on a campground barely able to affored the next meal. But my family kept positive and we're in a better place now.

Get over this poem... Seriously, there are more important things in life than a joking poem about a popular fad. FUCK! I'm surprised the author didn't mention Myspace and all the emo-kids on there.

**to the author**
Great poem... Very funny and observant. Keep 'em up ^_^ i like watching you make all the emo-kids cry o_-

Hahaha... This is great... People just need to learn how to get a sense of humor. Emo this, emo that, emo emo emo blah blah blah...
Learn to laugh at yourself because you usually don't have a problem laughing at everyone else.
 — unknown

i'm not entirely sure what you are/ were trying to point out with this poem, and i understand where people are coming from because by the sounds of it you come across as an emo hater, i don't understand what so many people have against emos they are just humans like us i myself dress like an emo and listen to the same kind of music, people should not label others it's not cool, and so mr/mrs/miss unknown this is not a joke because this is not funny and if it was meant to be you have an extremely weird sense of humour, and i don'yt see how anyone could find it funny at all, you obviously need to come back down to earth and stop being so judgemental and critical because it's hate like this among oursociety today and snarky comments like this and i quote...
'it takes many shallow inults
years of lousy social life
slitting empty rests with razor blades
and being rejected from numerous cafeteria tables
before deciding to drown yourself in your pint of luncheon milk'
that is what you may call a shallow insult and it is things like this and people like you who cause such discrimonation and hate in our world and help people who once may have been a happy out going person into someone that you are talking about in this piece of writing it is things like this that cause people like that to commit suicide, it is just another form  of abuse and bullying, so i would think before you act or speak, where's your respect???
 — unknown

funny, but biting. clearly a joke, but has a small ring of truth to it. much better than most of this site!
 — thisway

I feel sprry for lame people, but lame people who try and shout it out and pretend there lameness is cool are sad. if you are so depressed and angry, then hide away. if you are suicidal, you'd be ead. so grow up, get a real job and laugh. if you're ugly, smile and people won't notice. don't hide behind pathetic clothes and listen to talentless music. I thikn this poem rocks, because it makes the lame poeple sound not lame, and its true people aren't born lame, they decide to be that way because they are socially retarded. poem is very funny too.
 — unknown

I would never say anything to anyone, bully them for that. I guess its okay for teenager, they'll look back when they're 20 and think oh God how embarrasing! except for some who will become the dregs of society.

emo's rule, well some of them, but so do some chavs and that, but the best ppl are those hu are themselfs and if u r a true emo, then u wuldnt labeld urself one, ive been tld im a emo, ive bin told im a chav, ive been told im lots of things but tht doesnt stop me from b'n me

Why ?
Why be happy , sad , lonely , mad ,nervous etcetera when all feelings are fake?
Why are all feelings fake?  Why is it that my heart is going so soft and turning to stone at the same time? Why is it that our brain make us feel why cant our hearts guide us through ?
Why is it that makes me feel pathetic ? Why do I feel like trash ? Why is it that I feel like ending my life here and now ? Is it because I am  so useless worthless and pathetic ? Then why do I live whats my purpose of I living whats the significance of my life if I am worthless and useless to everyone why do I live why do I have to suffer? What did I do to deserve this if I would of known this since the start I would killed my self but now I cant I grew to much know I am too attached to this world now I have to suffer.
Would you please kill me ?  Would you kill me if you had the chance ?  Why don’t you help me stop suffering ? And end my life here …..
Why wont I die ? You would you help me die?

Wow. All of you fucks need to visit fourfa.com and shut the hell up. So ignorant.

If you're gonna joke about them, you can be accurate and just call them the whiny losers that hang around your local Hot Topic, but that's not emo. Those are just trendy bitches that listen to AFI and My Chemical Romance and think they're nonconformists.

But I thought it was kind of funny. Haha.

they are still gonna make fun of the kid that's different.
it's bullshit, none the less.
yes.
i wear dark clothes.
heavy eyeliner.
& dig on boys with tight jeans.
but no matter who makes a fit about how
"cliche'" or how rediculous 'emo' is
people won't shut up..
it's a little thing called free speech.
let'm talk.
the world sucks.
oh well.
people are always going to bitch about others,
all because they are too self-concious
& make up for it with stupid remarks.
i live through it everyday.
people won't change.
so everyone who does back up emo,
why bother saying anything?

I would really just like to know how you drown yourself in a pint of milk...at school, I mean.

I would like to comment by saying, OH. MY. GOD. What is wrong with you? "Wah wah...my life it horrible. Boo hoo...my boyfriend dumped me...let me kill myself now. Oh darn, oh cry, my parents got a divorce, I'm gonna go slit my wrists now. Oh sob, people rejected me from the lunch table...let me go hang myself in the corner." Oh my, isn't that the life of every other kid out there? The difference is is that we handle our problems. We don't take the easy way out, you lazy child, but we deal with it and go eat at a different table, maybe move on with our lives, look at the bright side of having two different houses and rooms. Everyone has problems...it is so sad you think yours are just so much more imprtant than everyone else's.

My suggestions to living a happy life::
1. Look at yourself in the mirror. Is there a reason why people hate you? Do you wear black clothes and cry all day? WHo would want to hang around THAT?
2. Smell yourself. Who in the world would want to sit next to or talk to something that smells like they crawled out of the bottom of a trashcan?
3. What do you talk about? Do you talk about all the bad things in the world? Maybe talk about...hmm...good things? Woah...now there's an idea.
4. Stop looking for pity. The more you ask for it, the less you get. Look at yourself...you're drowned in self pity, you look like you worship the devil and you cry at the sight of the sun. Get normal. It will help.

*pats Emo's head* there there, you can improve. Just realize you ruined your life on your own. I'm sure there is some way to fix it.

YOU DAMN EMOS!!! Shut the fuck up and stop blaming "us" (everyone who doesn't live in the emo-bubble) It's no one's fault but your own. You can't handle life, or your teen angst or whatever... thats not our fault. We all got through it with our wrists intact, so what the fuck is wrong with you? Stop looking for the deeper meaning in things and start living in the real world, people will like you alot better.
 — unknown

it still blows my mind that people take this poem seriously.  is satire intirely lost on our youngest generation?  or is it just the blinders of teenage insecurity?

damn.  i promised myself i would NEVER comment on this poem....*sigh*

You emo fuckin retards
 — unknown

Who says we are just commenting on the poem? We are talking about Emos, really, not the poem, I can see. The subject has changed now, and it is so sad you  haven't seen it. We are talking about emos in general...not this poem anymore. Sorry you couldn't realize that.

but first i would like... i mean LOVE to say is that i guess no one EVER took a second thought about what happened in COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL???
guess not... lemme refresh ur memories fuck heads...
2 goth kids were being picked on, so they decided to shoot uptheir school
now i know those were goths.. but i mean come on, anyone (like emos) can do that too
u never know... I could be in ur school shooting u up the next day, next day, or whenever
anyone can do it at anytime
im guessing no one learned from the COLBUMINE attack?
well if it happened again, THEN lets see how it goes after that...
u wet cunts... dry the fuck up
grow up, u fuckin retarded bullies

Less use of that horrible language please...this is addressed to the unknown, irate, over-exaggerating, dramatic, should be head of the drama club emo above me. Thanks. Because the two goths were being picked on is hardly a reason to shoot up a school. If everyone that was picked on shot people, president's wouldn't last long as president because they're picked on a lot. They'd be doing a lot of shooting. The kids on the little bus would be the most feared people in school. Minorities would be majorities soon enough if they killed every person that ever picked on them. People need to learn to just "suck it up." So what...you're picked on. If it bothers you so much, talk to the person about it or be a baby about it and report them to someone who cares. Because the two were picked on, is not at all a justification for killing. Killing is rarely justified. Especially for reasons like, "he picked on me." These kids that are picked on should form a club where no one picks on anybody. They can call it the "Happy Club." Their motto can be, we Pick our noses, we don't pick on people." They can have their own theme song. It'd be wonderful. I don't condone suicide or murder, but please...for all those emos out there, listen to the Queen song, "Don't Try Suicide." Have the following lyrics to the song be your new favorite song lyrics.

Don't try suicide
Nobody's worth it
Don't try suicide
Nobody cares
Don't try suicide
You're just gonna hate it
Don't try suicide
Nobody gives a damn

Don't murder either.

drowning is overrated. pills are much less pain.....i love you Eschatologic
 — lilili

what the hell...this isn't a poem, this is just a stupid assumption. Emo is a type of music. No one can actually be Emo. Can't you people get that through your biased skulls.and not all "Emo's" cut their wrists, either. When will these pathetic stereotypes end?

yo notice how all the emo lovers thatcomment on this poem are unknown hmmm it would lead yo to think that the ppl who love emos so mucdh are to pussy to give out their name
 — MsNewBooty

People like us? I'm sorry, but you don't think the rest of us have horrible problems? At least we don't inflict pain on ourselves. We take each day at a time whether or not it is good or bad. Perhaps that is why 'people like us' say things like 'stupid emo people' ect. because people like you can't handle daily the way 'people like us' can.
 — allure

yes i tottaly aggree
 — MsNewBooty

I agree MNB. Perhaps they should get accounts and state their 'loves'?
 — allure

yes lmao they should
 — MsNewBooty

You people seriously need to get a life..do you all like go around website to website finding ways to make fun of people that arent like you?...not all emo's are the same.i think that emo people just show their emotions more then most people and EVERYBODY has emotions so that makes everybody some what emo,just in their own little way.If you have no emotions then i suggest you start a talk show. Emo people are awesome,and if you don't like them then just leave then alone and go on with YOUR life,and they will do the same.assholes....

Still one of the most brilliant poems on this site.

"First off not all emo kids cut themselves.  Secondly who are you to care for other peoples problems?  Emo is genre of music not a fucking label so you jockass people can make fun of people.  Why do you think emo people cut themselves?  Maybe because assholes like people supporting the poem give them shit.  Life is life, people choose how to live."
I agree with this guy/chick, you shouldn't label people like that.
 — unknown

Hmmm...amuzing to YOU! Entirely retarded to me shut the fuck up with your selfish peoms Get a fucking life you WHORE

 — DianaTrees

hmm
sure, it's a joke,
but what teenager sits in a cafeteria
and has a "luncheon"?

luncheon?

luncheon?

pshaw!
 — chuckles

My question:: Why do you cut yourselves?

What is the point, really...I see none. To inflict pain on yourselves? But didn't you say that 'us jerks' give you pain? Why would you want more of it? I think it is worthless...prove me wrong. Enlighten me please.
 — Nerezza

The last line is priceless, and totally makes this poem.

""bitch you fucking suck don't hate on sumthing you have no idea about, emo isn't a lable for kids who slice their wrist. its a type of fucking music and sure kids who cut do listen to this music but that doesn't mean that all emo kids fucking cut and kill them selfs, its ass holes like you that make them that way in the first place

WOW. What a commentary ! *smile* I know I'll probably start a whole new line of bashing, but sue me--I did enjoy this read (whether or not it hurts people's feelings or has literary value in the world). It is light--so what? Who hasn't written light stuff about dark ideas? We're writers! Joke away. Most of us have been there in some form or another, emo or not.  Line 5--enough said.  But I do find it incredible so many took this so seriously. No offense, poet. And bravo.
 — gem_grrrl

Emo 4 evr

last line's killer bad baby, WOOOO.  maybe make it '..themselves in their own pint of luncheon'? that way you don't address your whole audience as emo, because they're not, i assure you.  general hilarity, i approve.
 — smcyrone

Woo hoo - I am the 294th person to comment on this silly piece of crap and am retardly proud enough to say that I've read every single comment before me. Still laughing my ass off.
