    Colour
    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 Ü White fellows;
    When U born, U pink;
    When U grow up, U white
    When U go in sun, U red;
    When U cold, U blue;
    When U scared, U yellow;
    When U sick, U green;
    When U die, U grey;

    And U call me coloured

    Great message coming straight from a child in the form of a free flow poetry.

    Great Indeed

    Morbid
    The burning awakens me.
    The stinging proves i am alive.
    The tiny, barely there drops of it fascinate me
    and i force out more with a pinch of my skin.
    i trace the scars obsessively,
    my links to life.
    the rush i feel when i explain away scar after scar,
    cut after cut...
    it soothes me,
    lulls that roaring dragon to rest,
    if only for a day.
    My poem. My feelings. My life.

    great one

    looking out of the window, i see.
    a little boy playing, another one a few steps away doing pee

    i watch them, as they play
    and take a look in the mirror of my hair gone grey,
