One of my students, Charles, who goes by the nickname Skywalker sat in our writing class today and came up with a poem. This is a student who is very good at hiding his facial emotions, unlike his teacher who shows them all. Here is his poem. Enjoy.
Do not show emotion, for emotion is a weakness.
Others exploit emotion and use it against you.
Keep a straight face for you may even earn respect.
do not show emotion so that others may underestimate you.
Emotion is a weakness to be exploited.
Sometimes being underestimated is a good thing.
