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.
What a fearful moment it must be When that bomb dropped Fear in people's eyes Panic in people's lives Afraid of what will become of us Stop this violence Stop this war Peace for all Peace for us Knowing this made me fear and wonder Do people still have to go through this everyday? Well, let's stop this violence Work for Peace Peace for all Peace for us
