"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.

i like this...its good, and true. you dont hear too many people say anything good about officers anymore. especially with the way the media portrays us. respect is hard enough to come by just being a civilian. its that much harder for an officer.

The "Eyes of a Man" This should be posted on every wall throughout the jurisdictions of citizens to see in public places like the governor's and mayor's pics....Put this one on the BILLBOARDS....Its a memorial of why one serves...I like writing and this is definitely the heart of someone forgot, or a wife, a sister, the child....

I have lost to many good friends that are LEO in the line of duty, and even though we still think about them and talk about them but everyday life takes over and people start to forget. This poem is amazing and reminds us to always be thankful for our officers and for each other....

Thank You so much for the job You do.....
