This post has been edited to include one of the first poems that I read by Tupac – “The Rose That Grew From The Concrete”. … “Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams…”
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.
by Tupac Shakur
