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.
No fate no hate no war, no more dead children on the floor no more blood inside the silence of the dark holes no more dying women all alone. We need to have more Peace And no more darkness nor hate nor war, let's create something new some new souls; lets try to give our world much more Love. But no more fate no hate no war.And no more dead children on the floor.
— Maria Henriques
