    A Rose That Grew From The Concrete
    Centered In The Mounts Of The Ghetto

    Through the caucus of a man harden as a rock
    The center of a foundation that is cemented through the heart.
    The vibes that are sent through the voices of the dead.
    The resurrection of a tender spirit corrupted by the proclamation
    Of a lynch mans rope. Gun shots ring, rose peddles upon the grave.
    My son no longer feels my dreams.
    Within the summary of a darkness the pen that marks
    The epithetic of a king.

    I rise my hands upon the concrete that I one day
    may the barrier of my son within the concrete a blooming rose.
    The blood that covers the concrete road.
    He shall feel the power of materialistic fortunes,
    But his spirit shall no longer live. Through the concrete
    the rose has fallen and died.
    Instant death through the sentiment of a harden heart.
    Within the slave masters theories kill the rose
    If it starts to branch out, it may gain to much
    beauty the concrete begins to harden the pebbles
    which it sprouts.

    Resurrection shall follow in another world and time,
    Harden as the rock without conscious of dignity
    That sets death traps, the welding rose wept
    the concrete has stolen an inheritance
    A mind that no longer sings.
    The rose pebbles of tears .

    Feeling This, YES
    The triumph is set in spite of repeated attempts to crush it.
