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 Injustice establish rescission Poorness establish recession Rescission for integrity will be yours in any means Recession for others are eradicated in any means Justice will brace you when you astonish peace Injustice will avoid you when you accomplish Peace Question establish conversation War establish contamination Power must abide by justice not to bride terror It may destroy me but not satisfy safety of your family! Stop wonder of when peace will get for you? The step of you to act is the substratum of peace Remember to: Step for peace Embrace peace, So what is peace? Peace rejoice for gathering Pease rejoice for families Peace rejoice for justice Single and simple: Peace is reviving for life!
