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.


The bird in the sky
isn't a bird.
The skydiver falling down   
isn't a skydiver.
The pain is real.

— Doyun Kim
