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.
A huge cloud of smoke, burned bodies, Sad people, burned down house blood These families lost so much This could never be restored this could never be re-done Sadness, sorrow, scared, disturbed, regret
