Poetry for Peace Contest

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.

Pain was harsh back then
No one could realize it
You can hear them scream
Many people can't forget
Don't let it ruin your life
