This year again we received a tremendous amount of stellar entries for our Peace Day contest. It was a very difficult decision but here are the 3 winners!
Category: Visual – Alejandra Arroyave M. from Colombia for her Peace Day poster.
Category: Video – Della P. from Canada for her musical composition.
Category: Written – Zamony W. from South Africa for her poem “Searched.”
Climbing to the top of a mountain and
Flying over the sea.
I kept searching where could you be?
Looking for you in New York,
You were not there.
I searched in Nevada even Portland
With no time to spare.
I sat under a tree in total despair,
Maybe you are a myth and not really there.
Until it was quite and the sun began to set,
I just sat there with my eyes drizzling wet.
While I dried my tears, I looked up and
Saw a butterfly rising straight into the bright sky,
Fluttering it’s little wings,
while the wind sings.
I suddenly felt a rush and my heart,
Began to gush.
I was wrong the whole time.
What I wanted was not something to find, but a
Feeling only a person can define.
The thought of what something simple can bring,
Gave me inner joy and peace within.
