Poetry for Peace Contest

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.

"Sorrow"

Mask up your faces 
Like nuclear victims  we run, 
The death around us 
Fear when life is gone from you 
You look at ash of your loved ones.


— Anastasiya Sindyukova
