What is Emo
As I go through stages of depression, like normal people do,
What really is emo?
Emo should mean emotional, which is a normal part of human life
However, a stigma becomes attached, like the flies to the light
"Stop crying, you emo freak!"
It seems "emo" now means "seeking attention through 'crying wolf'"
But what if the wolf's wounds are real?
But then, you wouldn't know, because you can't see into another person's mind
There are those that cry out for attention, they cry, they bleed, they collapse on their knees
All in hopes of hearing someone say some words of assurance.
Now, whether their cries be as real as water, or as fake as a paper flower, they go unanswered
The stigma wins over the perception of the masses
But what about the wolves that don't cry? What about the wolves that long to scream out for help, but they stay silent?
They never say a word, stabbing themselves slowly with the pain of being alone
They may smile, but they smile while their hearts are shre
