The Rose That Grew From Concrete

I love Tupac. The man was not only a hip-hop legend, but a true visionary as well. He was a thug, but he was about change. He stood for something and he wanted to see black people do better. I have been a fan of his music since I was a kid. I remember the first time I read his poems. It was awe inspiring. Below is one of my favorite Tupac poems. Enjoy.

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.

Written By Tupac Shakur: (1971-1996)
