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.

The Atomic Bomb

The Atomic bomb blew up

It was as easy as pouring water out of a cup

Only a little are alive

But a lot didn't survive

People got burned

Why don't they learn?

People are dying

And I am crying

I feel so distraught

Just to hear about that thought

— Cameron Ferrol
