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.

What If I Can Change The World


What if I can fly in the sky?

What if I can donate all my money to the poor?

What if I can be part of the sky?

What if I can have the power to sing?

What if I can give my energy to the people?

What if I can have a poem of my own?

What if I could run fast?

What if I can have the power to dream?


— Francina Saint Hilaire
