Brooklyn Bloom


Concrete Rose

They say home is where the heart is. 

Brooklyn is where mine will always be. 

Home of my first heartbeat, first breath, and first steps. 

The cornerstone of my tenacious temperament. 

Where I learned to dream my wildest dreams.

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?

Proving nature's laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet

Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams

It learned to breathe fresh air

Long live the rose that grew from concrete

When no one else even cared

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 tenacity.  We would all love its will to reach the sun.  Well, we are the roses - this is the concrete - and these are my damaged petals.
