"Wen I born,
I black.
Wen I grow up,
I black.
Wen I go in the sun,
I black.
Wen I scared,
I black.
Wen I sick,
I black.
And wen I die,
I black.
And u white fella,
Wen u born,
U pink.
Wen u grow up,
u white.
Wen u go in the sun,
U red.
Wen u cold,
U blue.
Wen u scared,
U yellow.
Wen u sick,
U green.
Wen u die,
U grey.

And u call me colored?"

Just wanted to share this touching poem reportedly written by an African child,.
