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.

When I heard those words
I pictured things in my head.
Japan was upset.
I felt depress of the bomb
How it injured Japan’s life.
