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 is a trail of laughter of children like bells running and ringing through fields it's the edge of your eyes when you smile in your sleep it's the world in a word when you sense truth is deeper than words can imagine it's learning to listen to share to reflect to connect it's not easy we complicate and confuse and we stumble towards yet Peace first need exist in our heart
