A rose can grow

From concrete you see

So I’ll be that rose

That grows to a tree

With roots that are strong

My limbs will grow long

Even though I am wilted

I can do no wrong

Through poverty, stress

Depression and war

I’ll still be a flower
I can be no more

Cause I heard from a stranger

What he said can’t be beat

The most beautiful roses

They grow form concrete
