This poem was nominated poem of 2005 for the best poem, written by an African kid.........amazing thought!!!


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 ??

Beautiful isnt it? I thought so too. I mean i marvel at its simplicity. Amazing.
