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.
An Atomic bomb is an Outburst of the Fruit the Knowledge of the Good & the Bad! The heat of the Atomic bomb burns Things to dust in a Blast! Better to negotiate PEACE at the Table for all Peace-Makers! Hatred is being used to play on People as the Human Shields to do Battle fields! Peace-ShaLom is the Only Healing Field as the Spiritual Shield from the Killing Fields!
