Written by an African child and was nominated poem of 2005 for the best poem.

ENJOY!



When I born, I Black,
When I grow up, I Black,
When I go in Sun, I Black,
When I scared, I Black,
When I sick, I Black,
And when I die, I still black,

And you White fella,

When you born, you Pink,
When you grow up, you White,
When you go in Sun, you Red,
When you cold, you Blue,
When you scared, you Yellow,
When you sick, you Green,
And when you die, you Gray,
And
you calling me Colored ?

….AND OF COURSE THERE’S NOTHING ELSE TO BE SAID.
