The Rose That Grew From Concrete

rose2I remember when I first heard Tupac Shakur on the radio, I immediately wanted to know more about this brilliant soul.

That was back in the early 90’s, and today I still love his music, films, and poetry. I was blessed to have watched his career spiral into greatness and was sad when he was killed. He was shot on my birthday in 1996 (September 7) and died a few days later. I will never forget him.

I wanted to share his work with you today. I hope it touches you just like it touched me again and again. View the image to the right in silence (the poem is at the bottom of the image), let it enter in your psyche and breathe. Asè.
