“When I am born” — Aneek Gupta

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2010 by Dr Aneek Gupta

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 gray

And you calling me colored?

This Poem Was Nominated by The UN As One oF The Best Poems – Written by an African Kid
