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.

What I saw ...people

Were killed and


What I think...

People were destroyed.

Killed and had no

Place to live.

What I felt was

Upset things that

Happened when war world

Two started.

— Daniel Ortega
