BERKELEY—During the summer 28 students from South Kern took off to a three-day trip to UC Berkeley.
Tears of pain stroll down my cheek
Tears of pain go down valleys of shame
Where the weak walk and where the strong are never found
Tears of pain that for years built up
Where every month it built up
It rushed out like a river breaking a dam and flooding a city
Tears of pain that will never go away
Until I don’t breathe and never feel
Will these tears of pain go away.
