Poems about Emo's

Teens who consider themselves Emo's or are labeled as Emo by their peers often turn to poems and song lyrics to express their painful feelings of alienation. The path to healing and peace always includes both recognition of the self and acceptance of the self. This may be the reason why poetry is so therapeutic to an "Emo". Frequent visitors to FFP find that reading poems can be as therapeutic as writing poems. We hope the poems displayed here can help you find comfort and acceptance.

    "The Emo" They Call Me

    From start to finish I wonder why
    The cuts look good in this messed up lie
