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 Means being one One with nature and one with all of humankind I see a woman with a child Their eyes are filled with tears of pain I want to wipe the tears away and comfort them They are starving And we, you and I, can do something
— Mohammad Hanif
