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.

Someone in your family died and
I feel sad for them.
A LOUD BOOM -----Those
Dark days aren't over
I feel hurt
Swept us off our feet
Shriveled bodies
Feelings are being hurt
September 21st---
