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.

Bomb blows up
Burning bodies
Buildings destroyed into pieces
Piles of human flesh burned into ashes
Sorrows, crying, sadness, and pain

— Andrew Whyte
