“Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?”
The idea and dream I thought could never sprout from my street,
But there was man who believe; the one who spread this,
Put the seed in the ground for this beautiful weed to exist,
No one showed faith in it’s possibility cuz of how crazy it seems,
“but by keeping it’s dreams,”
He knew the rose would live..
He knew what he had to give,
So he put his blood, sweat, and tears in the ground,
And trusted that natural will would bring it up now,

Fighting through dirt, rocks, and doubt the rose learned to persevere,
“it learned to breathe fresh air.”
With odds pushing it down,
The rose stemmed proud and strong from the ground…

“Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.”
Love live the man who rooted it…
