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.

LIVE IN LOVE - LIVE ALIVE

Does a rose need a purpose to bloom?
Does an eagle need a purpose to fly?
Does a kitten need a purpose to play?
Does a lover need a purpose to smile?

Does Joy need a purpose to laugh?
Does Freedom need a purpose to feel free?
Does Life need a purpose to live?
Do you need a purpose to be You?


All is One
All is Life
All is Love
Love is Life

Live in Love 
Live in Life
Live in Love
Live Alive
