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.



People sad

They were burned

Their hands had bumps

People had swollen hands

And faces

People can't stop thinking of this

Everyone dying

Sorrow

Sad

Worried

Scared

Regretful
