Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.

Below is one of the contest entries.



Bombs, lives, people
Lost forever
Sorry, sad, ashamed
Never can be undone
Is now history forever?
Never will be forgotten feelings
Shed badly people hurt
Severely


— Nathaniel Adjei
