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 will never forget the day

When people were killed  

Those people will pay

But we shall pray

for the people who were killed

We shall pay respects

Those people will be in our heart

that will never tare apart.

We will honor the people

And we will never forget them

we shall pray

we shall shed our tears

and remember those people

We will remember those kids

who were young and kind

But the bomb made them blind

We shall pay our respects

— Tenzin Tsering
