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.
I can't believe my eyes Burned people, blown up buildings Skinless people...blood big Light, bones, choking Piles of burned bodies...Forgiveness?? Sorrow, regret, scared smoke Broken buildings and cars Fire, yelling, crying
