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.
What If I Can Change The World What if I can fly in the sky? What if I can donate all my money to the poor? What if I can be part of the sky? What if I can have the power to sing? What if I can give my energy to the people? What if I can have a poem of my own? What if I could run fast? What if I can have the power to dream?
— Francina Saint Hilaire
