I'm Just Like You

A policeman’s poem, Anonymous

“I’m Just Like You”
I have been where you fear to be;
I have seen what you fear to see;
I have done what you fear to do:
All these things I have done for you.
I am the one you lean upon,
The one you cast your scorn upon,
The one you bring your troubles to,
All these things I have been for you.
The one you ask to stand apart,
The one you feel should have no heart,
The one you call the “man in blue”;
But I am a person just like you.
And through the years,
I have come to see
That I am not what you ask of me.
So take this badge, take this gun:
Will you take it? – Will anyone?
And when you watch a person die
And hear a battered baby cry,
Then do you think that you can be
All these things you ask of me?
