    Bruised by the badge I wear

    I wrote this just barely. I understand that I am yet wearing a badge but none the less I wrote it.

    “Bruised by the badge I wear”


    I am bruised by the badge I wear
    I face the world, I face my fears
    For every battered child that knows my name
    For every dead baby I couldn’t save

    I am bruised by the constant hate
    The constant feeling of being too late
    The broken spirit and the broken bones
    Taking an abusive father, leaving a broken home

    The drops of blood and the drops of tears
    That stain my shirt, the shirt I wear
    From seeing things I can’t describe
    The awful images that haunt my mind

    I cannot run and I cannot hide
    I can’t escape or change the time
    I am trusted to walk a line
    That leads to more things I can’t describe

    What makes it worth it, what makes me proud
    Are the hugs I get from a little child
    For every person I can help or save
    For being a child’s hero saving the day

    And when I go home to my family so dear
    I know that they love me and I can leave my fear
    Of what tomorrow’s fate may know
    The badge I wear proudly, and on I go

    Very well done. Wait till you get out on the road. You will find yourself writing songs and poems in your head. They are the way we as officers express to teh outside world whats going on in our world.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
