Oh Lord, I am a woman, not a man.
I am a Mother not a Dad.
I am a wife with responsibilities that men have never had.
I need understanding from all my peers,
That I am not to take away a man's job,
I am doing it because I care.
I took the job to enforce the law,
To do my part in the fight to have justice FOR ALL.
To be professional, to make a career, Great Lord.
Help me when they say I should not be
I work the long hours, face all the dangers and do the same
Things that they do in law enforcement matters,
Grant me respect like the others, for I am one.
Set aside for every other one, Lord.
Being a policewoman is the most challenging job I have ever done.
Be with me on my daily run, as you are with us all,
I thank you for the ability to enforce the law.
Stopping by to say HI and wish you a safe and great rest of the week, take care out there my friend!

It is polished and shiny and looks so fine.
Once you earn it you have to tow the line.
The minute you wear it upon your chest
it becomes a symbol that you are the best.
It means honesty, integrity, and fairness to all.
Your life is never your own, but at the publics call.
Night or day, any hour, it makes you a mark.
It doesn't protect you from a shot in the dark.
Over the years the shine starts to fade,
but brighter still is the man its made.
It is often what separates you from the crowd.
It is a second family of which you are proud.
