Tupac Shakur was meer dan een rapper; Tupac was een filosoof, een poëet en als het even kon zelfs een wereldverbeteraar. In de tijd dat Tupac leefde schreef hij niet alleen rap-lyrics maar ook gedichten. Als we deze gedichten bestuderen komen we eigenlijk nog veel meer te weten over de Thug-Life-Rapper.

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


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 A 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


When I was alone, and had nothing
I asked 4 a friend 2 help me bear the pain
No one came, except.. God
When I needed a breath to rise, from my sleep
No one could help me, except.. God
When all I saw was sadness, and I needed answers
No one heard me, except.. God
So when I’m asked.. who I give my unconditional love to?
I look for no other name, except.. God!
