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?
