    This poem was nominated as Poem of 2005 for the Best poem in the world, penned 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 ??

    I remember this poem from when I was doing my GCSEs (anyone who did them in England probably got one of those anthology books? This was in mine!). :)
