    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 laws wrong it

    learned to walk without having feet.

    Funny it seems, but buy keeping its dreams,

    it learned to breath fresh air.

    Long live the rose that grew from the concrete,

    when no one else ever cared.


    Fame is a Bee

    by Emily Dickenson

    Fame is a bee.

    It has a song-

    It has a sting-

    Ah, too, it has a wing.



    by Langston Hughes 

    Hold fast to dreams

    For if dreams die

    Life is a broken-winged bird

    That cannot fly.


    Hold fast to dreams 

    For when dreams go 

    Life is a barren field

    Frozen with snow
