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.



Hibakusha 
Im there for you in the rich and in the poor
the happiness and the sadiness 
the problems and the solution 
20,000 is the number, the number that hurt us all. 
I was there for you when your heart fell to the floor , 
When you saw Little Rocky on the floor dieing ever second of ever minute.
