Human in Blue

The sirens sound the lights are bright

It's another routine traffic stop

I approach the vehicle hiding behind the light

My hand on my gun rested atop

His door opens before I can shout stay in

Three loud pops were the only sound

The man had a gun and a devilish grin

I took two to the chest and hit the ground

I shouted for backup my breath faded away

He took off and left me to die

I wondered if I'd live to see another day

Why me, why now, who was this guy?

I'm no different than he I am a human in blue

I call on duty each day to protect people like he and you.
