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.

THAT'S WHY WE NEED PEACE!!!

Without peace we couldn’t live
Because the wars could interfere us,
And many people could die,
And many families-crumble.
Do we need  wars and many victims?
Of course we needn’t,
We need   peace, and peace, and peace.
And when we have it,
We would be happy,
Because we would live,
In the peaceful world!!!


— Petros Mkheyan
