"Behind the Badge of Reality"   

Dedicated to all the men and woman who
"Protect and Serve"

I am a man who lives a life of dare,
Always faced with a life of scare,
Not knowing what is next,
But will always strive to do my best,
When there is doubt I will always find a way,
A way to reach another day,
I don't know what I am facing,
I just know what I am chasing,
I know my life will be filled with fear,
But, that is my career!
