Happy Birthday Tupac Amaru Shakur....come back soon.

Twitter recently had a twitter topic called #booksthatchangedmylife. The Rose That Grew From Concrete was one of those books for me. Handwritten poems and doodles from the brilliant mind of Tupac Shakur. Won't you come back? I still miss you. Happy birthday wherever you are. 

Fallen Star
Written by Tupac Shakur
from The Rose that Grew from Concrete

Fallen Star
They could never understand
what u set out 2 do
instead they chose 2
ridicule u

when u got weak
they loved the sight
of your dimming
and flickering starlight

How could they understand what was so intricate
2 be loved by so many, so intimate

they wanted 2 c your lifeless corpse
this way u could not alter the course
of ignorance that they have set
2 make my people forget
what they have done for much 2 long
2 just forget and carry on

I had loved u forever because of who u r
and now I mourn our fallen star
