Nominated by UN as the best Poem of 2006 - Written by an African Kid

Hey y'all, i saw this nice poem written by an African Kid and decided to share it. This poem was actually nominated by UN as the best poem in 2006. 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 fellow

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 grey.

And you calling me colored?
