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.


People lost their lives
And people wear sad and cried
I feel sad and very bad people lost their lives
I hope you feel very good, change things in people
I thank you for the special day
This is September 21st.

— Timothy Kelly
