The Rose That Grew From Concrete – Poem by Tupac Shakur

The Rose That Grew From Concrete

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 its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared


  1. His music is the reason I’m alive! He was there, when no one else was! Even though he was dead, he was there! I hope you understand me, I’m not a madman! 🖤

    1. I do understand. We never know what will touch us and how we will be touched. I believe if we are open to be touched, it happens in ways that others may never understand, but we know. Thanks for your comment. Ray
