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.

Bombs were very loud
People dying everywhere
Buildings melting down
Mothers losing families
Illness, sickness through the air........
