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.
MY SOUL DIES. My soul dies every day when a child can't see the stars because the sky is a bloody mantle. There are no more tears to dry. I have smiled only to make to esplode. Amen.
— Enrico Danna
