Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
“Sometimes I wonder if all those other people fall in love with you as easily as I did. And I also wonder if all those people who have told you they love you ever loved you as much as I did. And do they still? Just like me? I like to think they don’t. That I’m the only one, just to prove to you that all the mistakes I made were mistakes and they never meant I didn’t love you. I hope I’m the only one left a thousand years from now, so that you know that every time my tongue missed yours, it was only mourning the distance between realism and optimism and had nothing to do with my love.”—Katie West
