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.
I was standing against the hell fire There was some eggs behind me The birds, today flying, are them if someone says "Peace" Half of us understands a piece Others it means 'pees' There is a shadow on the sky-a bird was flying at that time You will never see it-the bird hidden us We are here on the earth-we are still alive If you see a rainbow over the city The ancestors are rounding and dancing Because they are happy no more bombs Every night the Heaven cries with beautiful shooting stars Every morning the Sun shines for our beautiful life Between them we do everything it happens
