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.

What do you see?
I see that people skin was really rough
Also their skin must have been bumpy
What do you think?
I think that that those people must feel really hurt and pain
What do you feel?
I feel every upset and disturbed.
I feel scared because what if that happened to us - that would be scary
