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.

It's a Tragedy It Had To Go This Way

Crying and yelling
That's all everyone heard.
People Were Dying
And There Was Nothing To Do
Bombs were Crashing everywhere
And Everyone Was Frightened.

— Alice Loor
