The Rose That Grew From Concrete


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 its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
- Tupac

Let's talk about the kid for a second.

I'm blessed to know dope people in general, extremely blessed. Time after time I tell you guys this, Monique is no exception. This is one of those few moments where Twitter was actually useful for a change. The main reason I started following Monique was because she reminded me of Rosario Dawson, (in which her nickname Rose comes from), and from there a slight infatuation developed lol. Well after about a month of following and shooting my shot in her mentions, she decided to follow me back. What surprised me wasn't the fact that she followed me back but more so the fact that she turned out to be one of the dopest people that I've ever met.

Upon many chit chats on the timeline about nothing and just acting up in her mentions, we exchanged numbers and that's where things really took off. I learned some pretty cool things about her, none of which I'm going to share, but just trust me when I say there's so many layers to her awesomeness that you'd be jealous that this wasn't your friend in real life. The biggest thing that surprised me was the fact that she's 32 now, like thirty-freakin-two! When I first saw her picture I easily thought she was 23 at the most, upon talking to her I thought she was 25 at the most, no way she could be in her 30's already. I mean just look at this face!



If this isn't the finest example that black doesn't crack, I don't know what is. When it comes raw beauty she embodies all of the reasons that makes melanin great. And to those that ask what she looks like without makeup, there are pics floating around and she looks just the same, if not better to me. I'm not going to lie to you for one second about me being in awe of her beauty every single time I see her picture pop up on my timeline or on my phone. Plus she's a fashionista, no like for real she is, so her since of style is that on point. There have been plenty a picture tweeted that I thought to myself "hey I like that outfit", and I don't say that too often at all.

So she has the beauty, the brains, the sense of fashion, the outgoing and ever so charming personality, she just makes for one bad ass person. I'm all kinds of jealous that I don't get to see or hang with her to actually go out and be random and experience life like it's meant to be experienced. You guys know I'm all about vibes and people who are in good spaces with themselves and their lives, and she has to be one of the most chill and laid back people when it comes to being happy with themselves. It's just really rare that you meet a person who's confidence and happiness with themselves exudes and projects onto you and makes you feel better about yourself and whatever situation that you're going through.

Those are the qualities that most people look for in life long friendships.


I don't want to give too much away because she's like the best kept secret in my life right now, (well til after this post is published lol). I quoted the titular poem from Tupac because she embodies every sense of why it was written and it gives the proper insight on her depthness. I hope I gave you guys just enough to peek your interest in finding out more about her through her Twitter (@MeauxMa) or at the very least stalk her pictures on Instagram (@_mvze) lol. She's really a dope person once you have a conversation with her and I'm glad that I learned that first hand. So I hope this post finds her well and I hope that she can enjoy the birthday cake on her birthday this year like from her friend's in the picture above lol.

Until next time guys.
