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.

No guns or weapons,

No murder or hatred,

No suicide,

If only there was peace

No explosions,

No attacks,

Everybody is peaceful

No discrimination or racism

A world with peace

Would be a world full of happiness

Where everyone is friends

And no one is rude

— Sandeep Kaur
