Poetry for Peace Contest

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.

" World Wide Wish "

- Everyone has respect for each other
  To make peace together
  The world will admire

- When the world is bloody
  There will be grief individually
  To fight the enemy

- How the war is dreadful
  Nuclear weapons are destroyed those
  Gone the sufferings old

- Why the people should unite
  Every events can be organized
  The stranger will have apologized

- Let's make the world quiet
  Let's take the peace to collect

— Win Kyi
