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.
THE ATOMIC LOGIC There is a logic that beats all but the true logicians it is a philosophy that all but the real philosophers can't philosophized here is a wisdom that defies but the wise who understand? only mortals that dwell not in den's walls of wars only mortals that prevail in perfect palace of peace it is not in the sky that the astronomers may be ascribed to have seen neither in the deepest sea that the sailors may be proclaimed to have felt o yea brutal power at its apex will not prevail though men be feeble few by whom the logic are discovered will travel triumph to the throne of God though all tough men were made by it they rarely thought it through A mere scientist may seems to have sensed but just a sensible insane over the last darkness in Eden was it obeyed by the first light none but by it do planets attract planets so do men birds and beasts fall in love the logic lies neither here nor there it's within you-thus stability only in unity .
