The Rose That Grew From Concrete

Updated on September 5, 2014

The rose that grew from concrete

from a past once rooted in pain

Its stems still remain a symbol of its


History takes us back in time

to a place where racism lurked

For a people who wanted freedom

and justice.

The rose became its hope

Buried in the deaths of civil rights leaders.

The rose that grew from concrete has become a

testament of the human spirit

With love and light it still blooms today.

The rose that grew from concrete
