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.
Divine Time Lets fast forward through time Divine your mind, this time, everything is gonna be just fine Lets fast-forward through time Everyday is alright Its time to find another state of mind Rhyming life while you and I are still alive Life Lets fast-forward through life Everyone is alright, and I, wonder why we fight Lets fast-forward though life, seeing in a new light On our journey next life we'll find There's no rewind the future is kind so I'll Divine time Space A solar orbiting daze There's a space in my mind That gravity can't find As we travel through space With the human race We'll see Earth is not fine All her water has dried Healthy animals died And I want to rewind Earth Nature listen to her To every creature she gave birth We should listen to Earth On our life search Her birds try to fly next to bombs in the sky Nuclear submarines near fish trying to swim Why? Is she questioning time? It's her time to rhyme with time she cannot find She wants to stay alive Nature listen to Earth Let her give birth Find A new way rhyme Rhyme with time, divine, we all want to feel fine, From the morning sunrise, till the moon comes alive On our journey this time, we'll find, that everything begins to rhyme And Earth is still learning to fly
