Award winning Poem of an African child

This poem was nominated in 2005 as best poem, written by an African kid:


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?!
