South Sudan, 14 October 2015: A poem for peace

Julieta Lino (20), from war-torn Wau, has won the UNICEF peacebuilding competition with her poem of peace. She got to travel to the capital city of Juba to perform her poem at a Peace conference with Government Ministers and the UN.

Julieta Lino’s Peace Poem:

When I look around I see sadness
When I look around I see worry
When I look around I see danger, anger, death

Oh, is this what life is all about?
No. Life is about love, peace, unity and laughter.

Oh Peace – where do you live?
How can I find you?
Can I touch you? See you? Feel you and taste you?

Together we work for peace, peacefully.
Wake up South Sudan.
Rise up South Sudan.
Work for Peace.
