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.
Is peace a war? Or is it fighting? All these years was peace a form of union? Or was it yet just ignored? Peace isn't fighting It isn't a war It is a truce It is something we should start doing A world with peace will be No more dreadful wars No more going hardcore And no more lives being torn Peace should be spread Not being known as dead No more fights, threats, and depression Let peace now be a succession.
