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.




much Power to withhold
just     or         cruel
     war    has        no
                         limits
lying logic seeps through seams
another mourns in their sleep


— Barbara Duong
