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.

Why why why
Skeletons, chemical reactions,
Sickness, red dots all over
Smoke, explosions
Shocking to brain, sorrow in 
The night scared in morning
Why o Why?

— Danielle Evans
