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.

I see a girl and she looked
Scared and it makes me feel worried
A boy with a swollen face
How much pain he feeling
How sad it makes me feel to
See a woman's back burned
To know that mean people didn't
Care for others it brings me to tears
