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.

No fate no hate no war,
no more dead children on the floor
no more blood inside the silence of the dark holes
no more dying women all alone.

We need to have more Peace
And no more darkness
nor hate
nor war,
let's create something new
some new souls;
lets try to give our world much more

But no more fate
no hate
no war.And no more dead children on the floor.

— Maria Henriques
