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.
Hibakusha Black in the air The bodies on the ground All that I hear is the quiet sound I feel so much sorry I can't wait for another tomorrow I love the sweet sweet sound of the people in the playground So I don't think about nothing else because I feel so mad I hope the survivors don’t feel Sad
