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.
Never again I hope that never again will the atomic bomb be used I believe that never again will such darkness happen It happened once... ...and I pray that never again will that happen We must never forget Hiroshima We must never forget Nagasaki But despite the loss of loved ones WE MUST ALWAYS FORGIVE God gives us Peace Love and Freedom everyday We should be thankful to God. Never again tears, never again pain Please, never again! I believe that never again will such darkness happen. I belive in Peace Love and Freedom everyday. There will be peace if we all stand toghether We must not lose courage We can find peace Find eternal peace in your heart And don't give up in what you believe. PEACE! PEACE! PEACE!
