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.
HUBRIS NOVELLUM I saw a story in a face Each line was penned as "true" Mirrors of our human race Well chaptered without glue. No regimented start or close Their plots convincing still The inner minds no one knows What utter peace? What thrills? And so I live with shuttered eyes March in steps my own In hopes my face will never lie Awordlessstoryshown.
