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.

Crucify my fear

I won't to kill the bomb
and the echoes in my eyes.

Fear is loading again...

Out of sorrow brand new lifes
have been built
even if you can't find my prey.

I've sat and I've watched a wind thaw.

That's enough.

— Ed Warner
