This poem represented Tupac’s life in the way that he came from a place that meant nothing to society and a place that no one really cares about, a place that seems to just recreate a mess and not really give love and nourishment to the people that come from it. Tupac is the rose coming from this place, when a rose needs nourishment and care to grow and he as a person needs the same thing was able to come from such a horrible place and actually make a good life out of it. When the place that he comes from has given him nothing in life but a hard upbringing, the fact that he can still prosper and be beautiful even with his imperfections. He is one of the lucky ones that was able to come from such a hard place and still grow as a person and not become a product of his environment.
“Funny it seems but by keeping its dreams it learned 2 breathe fresh air” In this particular part of the poem he emphasizes that you have to follow your dreams in everything that you do. Tupac was big on following your dreams, he believed that no one could ever take away your dreams. One of my favorite quotes by him is when he says “reality is wrong, dreams are for real” And in this poem he really expresses that by saying this rose learned to live in this world by just never losing sight of its dreams. By following his dreams, he learned to live and he inspired many other to do the same thing.

As listening to love songs have gotten me dreary, for love to have lusted and gone only to have come back better, for love is parallel to each others equilibrium, tainted with faux pas hidden from reality, having to run away from the nights theory
Fieldtr – Compare this poem also with Pete Seeger’s “God Bless the Grass:”

I bought this book at Barnes and Nobles and it what a bit pricey for a book of poetry but let me tell you. it was definitely worth it.
This book of his original poetry, written when he was 19 on scraps of notepaper, really surprised me by giving a glimpse into that sensitive side. While some of the poetry is trite, there are a number of poems that border on profound, expressing Tupac’s deep appreciation for life and those who inspired him (both in his personal life and historical figures).

“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 without 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.

The rose and the concrete of the title “The Rose That Grew from Concrete” act as a metaphor comparing a person who grows and thrives despite being raised in rough conditions and a rose that grows in an urban setting despite the lack of proper care. The poet views himself as a rose who grows from concrete.
