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.

Yesterday we envisioned a day of peace,
Today we keep faith and survive till the day it ends,
Tomorrow we won't even know if it will ever stop.
But life is a gift given to us by above to love and cherish,
not because we are to turn this world into hatred,
this gift is taken away through destruction of mankind's faults,
we're meant to keep the gift and not take it away from other's.

— Kylie Luu
