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.
Sun shine blue skies Smokey day full of ashes People dying, people burning. This is all caused by the atomic bomb. Wars are bad, just try to shine! Even though your skin is shattered or Your hearts are splattered, don't forget To have hope because there's always going To be someone to rob the show.
