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.
Inner Peace for Peace when elephants of the past do not trample the preset when world within looks magnificently pleasant when I know I am not an immortal but a mortal from the core when I appreciate people around, I love them even more when I love the humanity in every human when I love the message within every religion that day, my goal of inner peace has reached and that day to the world my experience I shall teach
