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.
The heaven's Seal A colorless fragrant cloud of your Uninterrupted Mercy overwhelms me. The cords of Destiny throughout years, are pulling not only my extremities but; also my consciousness, heart, soul, everything and... I still bath in the boiling waters of impatience, as I stubbornly insist to argument, that I'm Human: as a visible plurality, but I'm not that and this I keep as a burden. On the bottom of scalp beneath hairs, The Seal of Unity and Uniqueness is hidden, and this is only known by only one Human, hardly a human; only by its form... For long time Mother called me Angel, mine no conviction reigned by suspicion, endeavors to extend to infinity, its dimly Century, I think in vain. The Cognition is showing my Divine provenance, Senses me on the lack of solitude, For so many times, And all day long.
— Fahredin Shehu
