4 “Why Should I Be Ashamed” Why should I be ashamed For the situation at hand that can not be explained Why should I be judged When I am not the one who holds the grudge Am I just a fool to want the same Just like any other citizen not wanting to be maimed I am human I am flesh No one should have to walk this earth with so much distress It is not a question of whether I belong Since my birth I have been taught that something about me is wrong As I stand strong in my shell I can only have this feeling of being in hell My children will learn the story to be told At long last it will be freedom that I behold I just pray that it will not be too late For my people to enjoy the great escape Why should I be ashamed For the situation at hand that can not be explained Why should I be judged When I am not the one who holds the grudge

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
