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.


They lost their loved ones
But most of ours are still here
Because we weren't there
Now they're all on their own
Lost in the path of darkness
