Soldier's Life Acrostic Poem

By Becca Cartwright

Some joined for the experience

Others joined for the cause

Lots of them only teenagers

Disease filled the air

Injured and dead soldiers covered the ground

Everyone wanted to run

Regretting ever joining

Staying home would've been better


Living in the worst conditions

Impure, dirty water and food

Freezing to death

Everyday, waiting for death
