I Am Me

I am me.

I am a woman, a daughter, a sister, a mother, a wife.

I have a white mother and a black father.

I am a black woman viewed as not really black by some.

I’ve been told I have “white people hair”.

I’ve been called the N-word.

I was a police officer for two decades.

I loved being a police officer.

It wasn’t just a job; it was a calling.

My husband is a white police officer.

He is a good man who loves me unconditionally.

I see things through the eyes of a woman.

I see things through the eyes of a person of color.

I see things through the eyes of a police officer.

I will listen.

I will use my voice.

I will not allow hate to burrow into my heart.

I am me.
