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.

Stop the war
stop the war
we want the peace
we don't like the fire
false or true face ?
... Stop the blood
your heart is so cruel
we need our food
Not your fuel
Stop the crime
if you are human
you created a bad time
do you have children ?
Stop your arms
take a flower
The life is so nice
Love is power
