Condemned

I've been sentenced to prison
For the rest of my life
CONVICTED
But not by a Judge or Jury

By a decision I made, twenty years ago
For a pledge, I vowed to uphold
For I am a police officer

I live in a clear bubble
For the world to see
Cameras are everywhere
But that won't discourage me

The blood, the tears, the deaths
The public's perception, the constant judging
ALWAYS SECOND GUESSED

The emptiness, the loneliness
The tears I cried, the pain I felt
The lives I saved, the people I touched
Nobody really knows

I've seen many things within this time
My mind just can't erase
This is the life, I chose to live

But please don't judge me
For the actions of others
For I am an individual

And to my brothers and sisters
Who are dressed in blue
Remember to be mindful, in everything you do
CAUSE EYES ARE ALWAYS WATCHING YOU
