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.

Peace In Our World

                 Is peace so hard to find? 
          Isn't losing your loved ones enough?
                   Why make it worse?

                 Is peace so hard to find?
                   Just spread the love
      One person is enough to change the world

                 Is peace so hard to find?
                   What is point of war?
         Love and Peace or Death and War?

                  If peace is so hard to find, 
                Are we ever going to find it?
