You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete
Had damaged petals.

On the contrary, we would all celebrate its

We would all love it’s will to reach the sun

Well, we are the roses – this is the concrete – and these are my damaged petals.

Don’t ask me why, ask me how!


These are the edited lyrics from 2pac’s poem “The Rose That Grew From A Concrete” which is featured in a new powerful Powerade commercial featuring Derrick Rose.
