Police Lives Matter


We all vowed to serve and protect
 to lay our lives down if need be.
 Young hearts with great expectations
 jubilant and also naive.

Day after day while recalling
 our purpose believed to be found;
 instead viewed as an enemy
 which the few ‘bad apples’ compound.

Consider we too are humans
 who face crisis and crime most days.
 The law was ordained to keep us
 all safe from the lawless crime waves.

We are of all ethnicities
 share red blood and uniforms blue.
 The first to respond in chaos
 to come be of service to you.

So when you see a police car
 that’s cruising down your avenue;
 perhaps you might wave and greet us
 remember we are there for you.
