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.


Through years people died,
There was a lot who suffered,
People had no help,
They had not expected it,
Japan will grow and prosper.

— Yaseer Elkhou
