This poem was nominated by UN as the best poem of 2008, written by an African kid:

Wen I born, I black
Wen I grow up, I black
Wen I go in d sun, I black
Wen I cold, I black
Wen I scared, I black
Wen I sick, I black
Wen I die, I still black

Wen u born, u pink
Wen u grow up, u white
Wen u out in sun, u red
Wen u cold, u blue
Wen u scared, u yellow
Wen u sick, u green
Wen u die, u gray
