...calling me coloured ?

When I born , I black .
When I grow up , I black .
When go in sun, I black .
When I scared, I black .
When I sick, I black &
when I die , I still black.
And u white fella ,
when you born you pink .
when you grow up u white.
when u go in sun you red.
when u cold u blue.
when u scared u yellow.
when u sick u green & when u die u gray.
And u calling me coloured ? ?
by an African child .
Nominated for a prize for the best poem of 2005 .
