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.
Feelings of Grieve Sorrow running through my veins Crying and screaming flying in and out of my ears Visions crawling up my mind Too scared to fight Too scared to remember My body is stiff and shaking My heart pounds fast at The screaming, worried voices
