Met twee muziekalbums gebaseerd op zijn poëzie hebben vele mensen ontdekt dat Tupac niet enkel een invloedrijk rapper en een goede acteur was, maar ook een jonge dichter. Hier staan onze persoonlijke favorieten, allen uit de bundel “The Rose that Grew from Concrete”. Alle gedichten werden geschreven door Tupac Shakur.

In The Event Of My Demise

In the event of my demise

When my heart can beat no more

I hope I die for a principle

Or belief that I had lived 4

I will die before my time

Because I feel the shadow's depth

So much I wanted 2 accomplish

Before I reached my death

I have come 2 grips with the possibility

And wiped the last tear from my eyes

I loved all who were positive

In the event of my demise !

The Rose That Grew From Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack

in the 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!

And 2morrow

Today is filled with anger

Fueled with hidden hate

Scared of being outcast

Afraid of common fate

Today is built on tragedies

Which no one wants 2 face

Nightmares 2 humanities

And morally disgraced

Tonight is filled with rage

Violence in the air

Children bred with ruthlessness

Because no one at home cares

Tonight I lay my head down

But the pressure never stops

Gnawing at my sanity

Content when I am dropped

But 2morrow I c changes

Built on spirit, intent of heart

And ideals based on truth

And 2morrow I wake with second wind

And strong because of pride

2 know I fought with all my heart 2 keep my dreams alive

The Tears In Cupid's Eyes

The day u chose 2 leave me

It rained constantly outside

In truth I swore the rain 2 be

The tears in Cupid's eyes

Can U C The Pride In The Panther

Can u c the Pride in the Pantha

As he glows in splendor and grace

Toppling OBSTICLES placed in the way

Of the progression of his race

Can u c the Pride in the Pantha

As she nurtures her young all alone

The seed must grow regardless

Of the fact that it's planted in stone.

Can't u c the Pride in the Panthas

as they unify as one

The flower blooms with brilliance

and outshines the rays of the sun

Ambition Over Adversity

Take one's advirsity

Learn from their misfortune

Believe in something

Believe in yourself

Turn advirsity into ambition

Now blossom into wealth

Sometimes I Cry

Sometimes when I'm alone

I cry because I'm on my own

The tears I cry R bitter and warm

They flow with life but take no form

I cry because my heart is torn

and I find it difficult 2 carry on

If I had an ear 2 confide in

I would cry among my treasured friends

But who do u know that stops that long

to help another carry on

The world moves fast and it would rather pass u by

than 2 stop and c what makes u cry

It's painful and sad and sometimes I cry

and no one cares about why.

A Young Heart With an Old Soul

A young heart with an old soul

How can there be peace?

How can I be in the depths of solitude

When there are two inside of me?

This duo in me causes the perfect opportunity

To learn and live twice as fast

As those who accept simplicity...

The Power Of A Smile

The power of a gun can kill

and the power of Fire can Burn

The power of wind can chill

and the power of the mind can learn

The power of anger can rage

inside until it tears u apart

But the Power of a Smile

especially yours can heal a frozen Heart

And Still I Love You

I don't have everything

as a matter of fact I don't have anything

except a dream of a better day

and you 2 help me find my way

Being a man I am sure 2 make mistakes

but 2 keep u I would do all it takes

and if it meant my love was really true

I'd gladly die and watch over u

I wish a knew how much I cared

u'd see my love is true by the life we'd share

Even if a changed your mind and said our love was thru

I'd want 2 die continuously cry and still I'd love u
