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.

I feel sorry for those who had died
People that lost their family members
Those who been torn apart
Buildings and houses that have been destroyed and ruined, it was a disaster
People was scared, people were killed, sick
The atomic bomb happened - 1945
People lost their lives
Today people are trying to prevent this
From happening so it won't happen again

— Sheknah Hibbert
