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 guns or weapons, No murder or hatred, No suicide, If only there was peace No explosions, No attacks, Everybody is peaceful No discrimination or racism A world with peace Would be a world full of happiness Where everyone is friends And no one is rude
