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.
A poem for the future To the left is a war-torn town; to the right is a beautiful city To the left are cries and tears; to the right are laughs and smiles To the left is endless sadness; to the right is forever happiness To the left the future is dying; to the right the future is blossoming We need to make what is left, right.
