I see you, As I walk my beat. The soul who's life as been so rough You've turned to drugs to cope. I see you over dosing on the corner. I call for help as you become a pulseless, nonbreather, I start hands only CPR. As they dispatch help. Please don't give up. There's so much more to life. I give it my all as I hear the sirens blare in the night. But help comes to late. I stand in shock. I give my statement. I finish my shift and go home to cry.
I see you, The guy trying to **** me because I wear a badge and a gun. Please don't make me shoot you. I just want to go home at night. Shoots fired, shoots fired. He's down, I gave him five warnings, “show me your hands.” I didn't want to. Really I didn't.
I see you, The guys that ***** me. I see you You forced my hand. I can't walk the streets unarmed. You messed with my head, And got away with it.
The nightmares come. I see them. I want them to stop. I'm so numb now. I cut myself to feel again. I see the scars. I cover them. Others cannot know I'm weak. They look up to me.
The horrors I see. Will they ever stop?
Working in security I've seen many things. Theses are only a few that have stuck with me.
