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.

We are all one.

It's all one.
Our past and the future and the now
are all one line 
divided in names
that I refuge to accept any more.
Future and past, our ingenious inventions
exist only to confuse us and burden us
with feelings and guilts that do not exist.

Run brother , run
and at the same time stay still
and try to listen to what your heart says, 
try to see what your heart shows you ,
open your heart and accept what life really is

Peace , Love , Harmony

Eat from my food
drink  from my drink
and you will see that I am you
and you are me.

We are all one.


— Marianna Glyfada
