my name is emily. im 16 and love just about anything having to deal with art. i wanted to get into poetry because i ran out of ways to express myself, it seemed like no one took me seriously. See, i am often put into stereotypes ("emo" or goth) because of the music i listen to, because i cut and burn and the way i dress, all of this has changed the way i think on the world and my own life. Instead of telling someone about the way i feel i write it out.
