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.

Tears in fear


Loneliness in indifference
 
It was not anger but a desire
Desire for a better future
 
Sympathy in harmony
Happiness in peace
