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.


Injustice establish rescission
Poorness establish recession
Rescission for integrity will be yours in any means
Recession for others are eradicated in any means
Justice will brace you when you astonish peace
Injustice will avoid you when you accomplish Peace
Question establish conversation
War establish contamination
Power must abide by justice not to bride terror
It may destroy me but not satisfy safety of your family!
Stop wonder of when peace will get for you?
The step of you to act is the substratum of peace
Remember to:
Step for peace
Embrace peace,
So what is peace?
Peace rejoice for gathering
Pease rejoice for families
Peace rejoice for justice
Single and simple:
Peace is reviving for life!
