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.

I feel really scared

I saw burned bodies all over the place

I think the people that survived are so lucky

I saw so much smoke

I feel very upset

I saw people without body parts

I think this was an event people can't forget

I feel the bodies were so frightened

I think everyone was going crazy

— Christ Reymundi
