Poem of the Day April 28

This is a poem I've been working on with the kids in my morning program for a little while now. It's a bit above them. But it's one of my favorites and I feel like if we keep at it they'll feel the same way too.

The 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,
but by keeping it's dreams,
It learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from the concrete
When no one else even cared!

by Tupac Shakur
