I’m on this road called “Life”
Wondering about the things I’ve seen 
Because on this road called “Life” 
I’ve encountered the obscene, downright mean, and many pitiful scenes

My question to the people is 

Where do we get off?
My question is 
Why do we act phony, like cheap knockoffs, and why is it right to do wrong and we celebrate it…mazel tov?

Where do we get off

Hurting our children, stripping them of their innocence?
Where do we get off
Beating our women and letting them cover up the little “incidents”?

Where do we get off

Calling men dogs or treating them like banks?
Where do we get off
Demanding things, feeling entitled? Where did we leave “please” and “thanks”?

Where do we get off

Treating people like a 401k, health, and dental plan?
Where do we get off
Being “friends with benefits”, no commitment. Is that the only way to keep a man?

Where do we get off

Pretending like real love is a thing of the past?
Where do we get off
Treating those with their own opinion like an outcast? 

Where do we get off

Stepping on each other in order to get ahead?
Where do we get off
Poking fun and hurting feelings so that we could feel good instead? 

Where do we get off

Forgetting humble beginnings because now we have a little change?
Where do we get off 
Treating the less fortunate with disgust like a dog with mange?

Where do we get off

Massaging male egos by playing dumb chick because we can’t have our own mind?
Where do we get off
Hurting him because the last one hurt us and we simply can’t leave the past behind? 

Where do we get off

Disrespecting our bodies by handing it out to whoever is willing to take?
Where do we get off
Judging others for their past mistakes? Are you that great? Come on give me a break! 

Where do we get off

Being so superficial, too shallow to swim in the deep?
Where do we get off
Running away from responsibilities? Calling baby mommas and baby daddy’s words that have to be covered with a bleep. 


Where do we get off

Painting the streets crimson red with bloodshed because we’ve lost the ability to talk?
Where do we get off
Leaving education behind, walking around with empty minds, like a blank sheet of paper when a writer gets blocked? 

The list goes on, but I’ve reached my stop and this is my cutoff.

This is where I have decided to get off.
