Daily Inspiration: Tupac Shakur’s “The Rose That Grew From Concrete”
This gardening season the GC team will be sharing a series of our favorite floral poetry to honor the more ethereal qualities of summer. This week, we feature a pick from Editor-in-Chief Molly Beauchemin, who chose a little-known poem written by rapper Tupac Shakur, which is called “The Rose That Grew From Concrete”.
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.
