FACELESS

You don’t notice

These students

Silently hiding

Facing you

In the classroom.

They sit

Neat and tidy

Their manners

On show

Doing everything

To hide

In plain sight.

They dutifully

Copy down notes

Make you think

That they are doing

The work.

But inside

They are dying

Their stories untold

Providing a lesson

In perserverance.
