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.

Feelings of  Grieve

Sorrow running through my veins

Crying and screaming flying in and out of my ears

Visions crawling up my mind

Too scared to fight

Too scared to remember

My body is stiff and shaking

My heart pounds fast at

The screaming, worried voices

— Carbin Palafox
