Jada Pinkett Smith Shares Unreleased Poem From Tupac Shakur

Jada Pinkett Smith is celebrating the late Tupac Shakur.

The 49-year-old Red Table Talk star shared a poem from the late icon on what would have been his 50th birthday on Wednesday (June 16).

Tupac Amaru Shakur would have been 50 midnight tonight! As we prepare to celebrate his legacy … let’s remember him for that which we loved most … his way with words. Here are a few you may have never heard before✨ Happy ‘you goin’n to be 50 at midnight’ Birthday Pac! 😆 I got next😜 P.s I was planning to post tomorrow which is why the video says today is Pac’s bday. But I decided to start earlyyyyy✨,” she wrote.

“Of course, I went down memory lane. Over the years, Pac wrote me many letters and many poems. I don’t think one has ever been published honestly,” she said in the video.

“Some say nothing gold can last forever / And 2 believe this (I) need no proof / I have witnessed all that was pure in me / Be changed by the evil men can do / The innocence possessed by children / Once lived inside my soul,” the poem reads.

“But surviving years with criminal peers has turned my warm heart to cold / I used 2 dream and fantasize / But now I’m scared 2 sleep / petrified, not to live or die / But to awaken and still be me,” it continues.

“It is true that nothing gold can last / We will all one day see death / When the purest hearts are torn apart / Lost souls are all that’s left / Down on my knees I beg of God to save me from this fate / Let me live to see what was gold in me / Before it is all too late.”

Jada Pinkett Smith also recently made headlines for an intimate moment she shared with her family.
