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?*

Bagi saya, ini puisi yang kuat! Senang bisa melihat puisi seperti ini
