Rose that Grew From Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature’s laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it’s dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.


The Rose That Grew From The Concrete is one of my favorite poems. As I relate to it so much. You can interpret the words of this poem and apply the message differently to your life. For me the concrete is the world, it’s the people who don’t believe in you, it’s people who have wronged you, it’s those exes who never had any good intentions for you, it’s those who talk about you, and it’s the secret haters.

These things can leave you tainted if your not a rose. Through all of the bad relationships, the naysayers, the haters, and back stabbers I have remained a rose. I thank God that I am rose.

I am and will continue to prove nature’s law wrong. A rose believe that they can do more than what people say or think. A rose try new things and don’t listen to what others say. A rose march to their own drum. A rose is confident. A rose is resilient. A rose is the most beautiful flower in full bloom.

We wouldn’t ask why a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals, in turn, we would all celebrate its tenacity, we would all love its will to reach the sun, well, we are the roses, this is the concrete and these are my damaged petals, dont ask me why, thank god, and ask me how.
