Readiness Is All, For I Am A Police Officer

I am ready to go,

when everyone else is thinking to go,

I will get my man.

Go I will, and get I will,

An astray man with a deviant thought,

with harm to sow.

I was on my beat,

When I heard my heart’s Calling,

Just a moment ago.

My Love, my sweet, promise to be brave,

Hold back your tears,

Make it easy for me to go.

 For the sake of humanity,

Life of hopes, sunshines, and dreams,

Could be let go.

For me, Readiness is all,

Readiness to sacrifice is all,

 Every Calling is destiny,

And as always, I am ready to go.

    Very lovely poem, thanks and have a great evening 🙂 !


  7. I don’t think I have mentioned this but my step brother is a police officer in New York and some of the horrors he has experienced with 9/11 and other tragedies I wonder how he has the courage to do it. Your page is such a beautiful dedication


    • WOW! I did not know this but You must be proud of your brother. My blog honors our protectors and no doubt the job of a Police Officer has a lot of challenges. We cannot even comprehend how these superb human beings cope with the pressures of every day work which is so challenging and dangerous. We can honor and respect them and thank them and pray for them, at least. Thank you for liking my page of dedication my friend. I appreciate it so much and it encourages my passion to do even better. Thank you so much for sharing this personal detail. Take care and have a lovely weekend,.

    a Great post…
    Thank you for always honoring the ones who are warriors
    and guardian angels
    Have a wonderful weekend
    Take Care…You Matter…


    • Thank you so much for such great words of appreciation Maryrose. I feel very fortunate to honor those who are our protectors and guardian angels. We are surely blessed to have such a dedicated Police Force as our warriors. May God bless them and keep them safe. I appreciate your lovely comment and visit. Take care and God bless.


  9. Thank you for sharing the heart of the Police Force Samina, if we don’t stand for something we will fall for everything and the Police stand by the Law knowing it is for the good of everyone but what if it was not and only based on evil like in Hitler’s Government, this is why each of us has to decide who we follow, man or God.

    Jesus was hated and ignored because He chose His Fathers will even to His death , He tells us those who are hard – hearted will ignore His Truth and hate those who bring it.

    I see this steadfastness with our Police Force, yes they are sometimes verbally abused and not respected as they should be but this does not alter their stand for enforcing the Law, hated or Loved, they remain committed.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne


    • Thank you so much Anne for your beautiful comment and it is true our Police Force is very committed to serve and protect us regardless of the response of the public. This is what makes them the best Police Force in the World. We are surely blessed. Thanks for the visit. Take care and God bless.

    brave and powerful poem for the duty-bound officers.


  14. Uzoma says:

    Aw, this is a gem of a poem! Love that it portrays willingness and service to humanity.


  15. reocochran says:

    The words that captured my heart with this poem were “For the sake of humanity!” Such service, dedication, strength, bravery, and willingness to endure the things they do. They have to overcome fear of death, knowing their lives are on the line at all times. I admire and really appreciate the way men and women who choose this “calling” carry out their duties. Fine post, Samina, like always! You give us a lot to think about and remind us to thank our community workers.


    • Thank you so much Robin. Your lovely comments always cheer me up and make my passion stronger. Very well said that we must honor those who put their lives on line for us. Your words of praise for our protectors fits their character so well. Your comment has made me feel very proud. My efforts are showing positive results which is my highest award. Lots of love and hugs for you. God bless you and your beautiful family.


  16. What a beautiful poem from the heart! It makes me tear up. What an amazing woman you are . . . and may I add that you certainly have an abundance of good-lookin’ men where you live 🙂 !!


    • Thanks for liking the poem and yes everything came from the heart. You know I wrote this poem by just looking at the photo of the Police Officer and the words just came out of my heart. It is amazing Ellie. Maybe my passion is becoming very strong with every moment. I brought tears to your eyes and your comment doubled me up in laughter. LOL. Yes I live among very beautiful people including my hubby, and the setting of my house is pacific west coast. Overlooking the pacific and surrounded by lot of beautiful people of law enforcement and even the pets here are good looking, one can think of nothing else but beauty. Beautiful people with beautiful characters and hearts living among the beauty of nature is a blessing of God. I am specially blessed by God. Thanks for making my day. You are beautiful Ellie. Take care and God bless.


  17. I really look forward to your posts, actually they have taught me to look at police men with a different angle, we Indians are so allergic to them that mostly we forget that not all of them are bad, you make me realize that quite a handful of them are good too!

    keep them coming!


    • Hi! Sharmishtha my lovely friend. I am greatful that you look forward to my posts. It is a great compliment to me. Yes I believe even in Indian Police Force you will find good people. The tragedy is that only a handful of bad people can sometimes tarnish the image of the majority of good police force. I read your comment on my last post that you wait for my post and I was so thrilled I quickly put up this post since I didn’t want to let you down. See the power you have. Thanks for such an encouragement my good friend. Take care and God bless you.


  18. Eid Mubaraq!! May all the blessings of God shower down upon you!


    • Thank you so much my friend and it was Eid today and Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday. On both these occasions people offer special thanks to God for everything that He has blessed us with. Turkey dinners are served to the less fortunate in the churches and other places. People cook special turkey meals and invite friends over dinner and offer thanks. These days are special days no doubt. You take care and God bless.


      • I will some day love to read the stories behind muslim and Christian festivals! I love reading those stories and then feeling what the people of that religion feel on that day!

        till date I know only about Christmas, Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Halloween of Christians, and the birthday of the prophet of muslims.
