The Rose That Grew From Concrete - Poem by Tupac Shakur

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.

    Sprouting through all obstacles in spite of all the laws of physics. This rose defied the expected norm of life and I can imagine the beauty of that Rose. (Report) Reply
