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.
Pain of Hiroshima Harmony shattered Innocent victims Rotting away slowly Opaque sky above Shower of painful tears spread throughout Hidden grotesque images Injustice sufferings Massacred by an atomic bomb Abhorrent history never to be repeated again Why War? Pain, blood, tears remain Grief, odium are developed Why do we still fight?
