"The Rose that Grew from Concrete"

illustration of a rose growing in concrete

Creative Writing class recently read “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."

As part of this cross-curricular assignment, students were asked to write their own poem and choose a flower as a metaphor for overcoming adversity.

Here is a sample of the finished product!
