Like a canary in a mine
You fly in each day
Knowing it might kill you
Tell me, Kamikaze Girl
Was it blindness or strength
That made you so brave?

You always clench your fist
But you never hit back
Only now do I realize
You were too dignified for it
Tell me, Kamikaze Girl
What is worth so much
To make you want to stay?

Like paint chips away
I watched your blue eyes
Fade to gray
Tell me, Kamikaze Girl
When did you stop praying?

If God has forsaken you
Then let me take his place
I may be weak
But I will hold you up
Tell me, Kamikaze Girl
May I be your Savior?

Raise your fist again
And fly into the shadows once more
Do not be afraid, My Kamikaze Girl
You’re too precious to die

I really, really liked this poem. It really drew me in, and your tone is clear, but still quiet and subtle. The only part I didn't like is the second stanza, because I feel that it's a little awkwardly written, but other than that, I really though the whole poem is very good.

Very unique!
I suggest more imagery. It didn't really grab me emotionally, however I like how it flows.
