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.

Peace is gratitude
Peace is love
Peace is heaven sent from up above
Look no further than yourself
This time difficulties have put you to the test
Determination is what makes you your best
Feel blessed
Pray for Peace
