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.
Where Peace Fear To Tread We are living in a world where peace fear to tread The people are divided the soldiers are united and war is the diktat The cries of poor people are spreading in every nook Politicians are ignoring much they could Mother earth is also crying no one listens to her too Cant escape these atrocities and her last days are coming soon Power, greed and segregation are dominating the world Giving little chance to peace to show its worth The disarray leads us only to torment But who can make these powers realize That their doings should come to an end
