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.
Have escaped from fire Black rain is pouring Hear the footsteps of Death He is getting near by near When will he arrive? Today tomorrow or years later ? Nobody knows Hope people feared by him will not increase any more
