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 Living Hell I only listened Them talking about that day Darkest day of their life Detailed descriptions Picture disturbing images Only they are real I will never feel Or understand what they had To suffer and bear Or know what’s real pain Only they’ve really felt what a Living hell is like.
— Ayman Kuddus
