"The Eyes of a Man"
If you ever can look into the eyes of a man dressed in blue,
It will make you wonder why he protects me and you.
He suffers from lack of sleep, the red eyes will tell,
Even missing a meal or two to keep us all well.
Years of tears sometimes built up inside,
From what he has seen, but thinks he hides.
Look a little deeper in his eyes and you could even see,
How he felt all the years he has protected you and me.
For all the times people have been rude to him,
For pulling them over, while out with their friends.
For the little girl he saved from a burning car,
While others just watched him from afar.
Not to mention, the bank robber he caught last week,
People never talk to him unless it’s his help they seek.
For the drugs he has confiscated over time,
The people, he has saved comes to his mind.
The times he wonders at the end of the day,
Is it worth all this pain, for such little pay?
But, don’t look unless you are willing to see,
He is a human being just like you and me.
He wears his uniform, gun and a badge on his chest,
Doesn’t make him perfect just a grade above the rest.
For if you look real hard you will also see,
A man who you respect is who he longs to be.
Thank you for the add. take care of yourself and be safe out there!

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.
