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 think about you all the time
And everyday it hurts to cry
So much has happened in my life
I'm not sure how hard to try.
Tears are falling constantly, 

My heart hurts.............

— Maria Tejeda
