Nothing to lose

Broken, Cold, Empty, Devoid of hope
These are the forgotten generation
These are the few who stood up
The young that fell for such a cause

Lost, scarred, unremembered,
These boys sent with hope of glory
Learn instead what it costs
To die a nameless death

Over they go with nothing to lose
Over they fall with nothing to lose
Over they die with nothing to lose

    this is a lovely poem pEterr, i especially love how the expectation of the opening line (echoed in the capitalisation of the openeing words - like bullets of the soul) is maintained throughout. Actually, did you mean 'devoid' of hope? Because then it's not so impressive.
