The Rose That Grew From Concrete by Tupac Shakur

n720637512_1172069_6126

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.

This poem is from the book ‘The Rose that grew from concrete’, which contains 71 poems by Tupac. He had written this at an age of 18, before he began translating his poems into rhymes. 

R.I.P.

    I have used the image ‘The Rose That Grew From Concrete by Tupac Shakur’ in my blog. Please do tell me if you have any objections. I will remove it.
    Thanks a lot!

    Re: the photo on your site with the girl and rose in concrete, do you happen to know where I can get copyright permission to use it on an educational flier? Do you know the artist or the origin of the image?
