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.

Burned bodies, burned cars, Burned houses, chimney on the floor Ruined crops and farms, everyone, downcasted Disturbed, melancholy, distraught, Sorrow in the air
