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.



no peace in the world
till a child will have
no pencil to draw his dreams

no peace in the world
till a man will be missing
dignity and hope for future

no peace in the world
till a country will need
a gun to defend democracy

no peace in our hearts
till everyone of us  will be
deaf and blind or indifferent


— Santa Vetturi
