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.

To see what happen to you,
Your family and friends
Burned trees and cars I think
It was very bad and I know
It was for no type of reason
I felt sad and upset and angry
I saw broke building
I think it was very bad
For you

— Jaden
