Have You Heard? (For ‘Pac)– Nnaemeka Oruh


Have you heard, have you?

The story of the Rose,

Queen of the Plant Kingdom

Nobody knew, not even ‘Pac

That she would become royalty

Defying conditions,

of her birth–her foundation

She broke all rules, even nature’s

Her resilience, stone-hard

Cracked the concrete

Making a fool of nature, her pundits

And naysayers


Have you heard the story?

The story of the rose

Told by ‘Pac but witnessed by you.

The Rose that grew from the concrete

And today rules her world?
