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.
Blinded by the light Yet seeing so many images. The insufferable gloom of wanting to vanish within the darkness. Leaving behind a trail of tears and memories, vulnerable and alone.
