I know this isn’t a picture of a rose but when I took this picture during one of my vacation trips, the first thing that came to my mind was the poem “The Rose That Grew from Concrete” by Tupac Shakur. And, because I know that not everyone knows this poem, I’ve posted it for your reading pleasure:
“The Rose That Grew from Concrete” by Tupac Shakur
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Provin’ nature’s laws wrong, it learned how to walk without havin’ feet.
Funny, it seems, but by keepin its dreams
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else even cared.
