ART Literati | REWIND: 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.”

— Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew From Concrete
