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.


Children are the future.
They laugh, they play and annoy you all day.
Children are the future.
But, if the world was controlled by them,
there would be no wars, conflict or disorder.
The world would be filled peace.

— Christina Williams
