I think being emo is about being depressed and emotional and when you're depressed, you cut yourself. I am emo and I wear a lot of black which is my favorite color. Being emo is where you cut and wear a lot of black. There are lots of ways of being emo and usually emo people don't really care about that. Emo people are cool to hang with and they can be nice.
Some emos draw and when they do, they draw about death and it being cold and dark and blood dripping. They draw these things because that's how they feel in the world. They write about cutting and how they feel when they're depressed. They're expressing themselves to others who don't want to listen, so they just write it out and get it over with. That's what I think being emo is.
