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.
Smoke, explosions, burn skin All the tragedies that happen to these people Buildings falling down, people burning flesh All the sadness, being scared, and all the people who died and survived People crying, people dying The saddest part of all All of the terrible things that happen For no reason at all
