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.

Boomed

Flying through the sky
Didn’t know what to do
I fell to the ground and 
went boom
Made a big flash and
Didn’t know what to do
Could of hurt people
But still had no idea
What to do
In this world do we ever
Know what to do
I don’t know do you


— Jimmy Budis
