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.



Peace I hope will come soon
Everyone is one
Atomic wars we do not want
Come spread the word spread the peace
Everyone is one


Hibakusha
The survivors
Living on from the bomb
The survivors
Hibakusha


Flash of red
Many are dead
