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.
Resolve I'm not here to argue about who is wrong or who is right for who determines what is wrong or right I just know that we have an issue to RESOLVE For we are drifting apart like a calabash on a moving stream away from shore So I beg we RESOLVE this issue and rediscover our LOVE For in RESOLVE we find a common ground, LOVE We lived for LOVE, shared LOVE, grew in LOVE and its is that LOVE that we must hang on to. So let us RESOLVE the issues for the sake of LOVE and in so doing we EVOLVE from one stage to the other and not only let ourselves EVOLVE as individuals but also the LOVE we share A major reason why I'm here RESOLVE this issue that wants to separate us
