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.
I yell out. Can you not here me? See me? I cannot hold on much longer. I'm slipping away like a leaf in the breeze. My deity is calling me. And I listen. I am home now. Goodbye cruel world, I bid you farewell.
