Get over it. The school can't afford to put something that could possibly set a bad image for them in their paper. It just doesn't work that way. And secondly, teenagers need to stop abusing the word emo. It's getting unbelievably annoying.

I'm fond of creating poems......
and 2 of my poems were chosen by
my English teacher
to be published for the school paper


when my teacher submitted it
to the vice principle....
she didn't accept it....
because.....
it was EMO!




she thinks that EMO
songs, looks,poems,and other
stuff thats EMO
makes people commit suicide



isn't it unfair?
she can't order me to create
happy poems when i'm feeling
depressed and stuff.
and poems are emotion based
so poems are not easy to write.



it is very discriminating
just because my poems are
written EMO-ly
it doesn't mean I'm suicidal.
its just based on what i'm feeling.


Tell the teacher of f**k off, its a reflection of ones feelings at the time, and sometimes you can be touched by it, hurt by it, and others you just hate them

I guess its ok for you to be emo but if the school publishes an emo poem, there is a slight possibility of a super emo schoolmate committing suicide after reading your poem...though that's not really likely but anyway, schools must always keep an image and emoness is not part of it.

pam-chan, sorry to hear that your poem wasn't accepted for publication. Personally, i have no problems accepting poems of every shade out there. In fact i tend to stay away from sappy love types, coz they tend not to reflect reality.

Having said that, i agree with the other posters that the school has an image and accountability. She's obligated to parents, teachers, the teaching board and other people. She might just want to keep on the safe side. Litigation is can be a bad thing.

I don't think the vice principal has anything personal against sad/depressed poems. Maybe she didn't really understand that poems can be sad without descending into self-loathing world-hating emo-esque.

Find other avenues to post your poems. Here, your own blog for your friends etc. World's bigger than vice-principals and school papers.

I understand that the populous' view of Emo is a very negative one.

But I can't blame them. I have NEVER in my life seen anything described as Emo as being anywhere near happy.
