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.
Onward for peace and onward still wails and debris of a past seal for peace and we labour till blood and toil and a silent chill that we seek light and live a day no faces of pointless dismay may it all cease may it be for peace Bombing Timelines bombing timelines scattered debris soot in my eyes i can no longer cry
