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.

Praying for Peace

Get on your knees
And cross your hands
Pray for peace
Throughout the land
Hope some day
We will be free
On violent acts
From you and me.

— Denis N.
