➪ Currently Reading… ❀❀❀

༒༒༒


This poetry book is so good. Reading Tupac’s inner thoughts after idolizing him for so many years is quite scary, but also very remarkable. Every poem damn there makes me cry, but it’s so worth it. Getting to know him a bit more. Rest Easy my love✨

❥ The Rose That Grew From Concrete

Did u hear about the rose that grew from a crack

In concrete

Proving nature’s laws wrong it learned 2 walk

Without having feet

Funny it seems but by keeping its dreams

It learned 2 breathe fresh air

Long live the rose that grew from concrete

When no one else even cared!

Shoutout to @josthebibliomaniac for gifting this to me❤️‍🔥

❥ Make Me Rain

Poem (for Samuel H. Howard)

We are so proud

Of those who ran

And those who did not

Tell

Who was running

One day some of us would build

A home

A church

A school

A community

That we could celebrate

Nikki Giovanni also wrote the forward for Tupac’s book. I didn’t find out until I started reading them, of course. It felt, really good. Like I was meant to read them together. Mind you, I’ve have Make Me Rain for a while. Timing is really something🤷🏾‍♀️🥰

❥ With Love, LOP 🙂
