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.

S-Such a terrible day
U-Under attack
R-Rescue us
V-Violence is evil
I-I scream for help, but I am not the only one
V-Vivid scenes of terror
O-Over and over comes the gunfire
R-Rice paddies on fire

— Max Gerozissis
