Kamikazi - Poem by JJ Evendon

I am Divine Wind called 'Kamikaze'.
My mission, to destroy any warship of the US Navy.
I am my country's true war hero
for I fly the impressive Japanese Zero.
I need no parachute for I shall die with my plane
hit target, make it sink, never to be seen again.
I am a warrior of the skies
with a one way ticket labelled 'suicide'.
I pray my aim will be true and my path clear
for I hold nothing more than my country so dear.
With shells passing and exploding all around,
I dive, with speed brakes out, they make a screaming sound.
As I get closer to the American carrier
on deck, I see people run in sheer terror.
In less than a second everything is gone
a perfect hit that set off my bomb..
Some people will say I was young and crazy.
I say, 'I was Divine Wind – Kamikaze'!

    Breathtaking description of the WW II Japanese heroes for whom the purpose of life was to sacrifice it in the service of their mother land. Re-lived those moments and emotions. Thanks. (Report) Reply
