Her Story: PIMPED OUT AND I’M TIRED
These pimps are out there and they won’t leave me alone. I keep the hustle going but they still say they want more and more. “Get out there and make my money” they say. “And don’t come back here without it. If you don’t give me every penny that I need, I’m going to go up on it and you’re going to owe me more.”
But Misters, I’ll call them that, I don’t have anymore. I’m tired. Can I get off the street for a while? But they say “No. You get out there and make my money. Next time I tell you to make my money you better bring it to me on time.
But Mister, I got to get my car so I can get over there to the workplace.
“I don’t care about that car. If you want a roof over your head you better get me my money.”
But my lights, Mister, if I don’t have enough I won’t have lights.
“You don’t need lights for what you have to do. Just get on that hustle and get my money.”
But Mister, it’s cold and I need some gas around here.
“You don’t need any gas. Just snuggle up and get some more blankets. You’ll be fine. Just get me my money. We all need our money. Don’t I take care of you when you give me my money? So get me my money.”
They all say that they take care of me. But if I don’t get them their money they drop me. I don’t have any help. I go to one for help and tell them that I don’t have it. But they don’t care. Each one wants their money. They will take a big cut of whatever I get. So I ask, Mister, what if I can’t get all of it?
“That’s not my problem. You just get me my money.”
So here I am hustling every time I get a chance. My legs are always out there trying to make that Hustle. My legs are tired. And I say to them, I’m getting older. Don’t I get a break?
“A break? As long as you can walk you don’t get a break. You bring me my money. And I need it by 5 today.”
So all weekend long, I was on my hustle. Oh, but they’re still not satisfied. The Pimps keep riding my back day and night. I got a phone call from one of them.
“Where are you? Where is my money?”
I said let me out. I’m going to stop. But they know about each other and they all tell me that they own me. I’ll never get out. I called myself taking a couple of days off and I got a phone call from another one of those pimps.
He asked, “where the H… have you been? I have been waiting on my money.”
I explained that I had to get off my feet for a minute and that the hustle was killing me. He said, “I don’t care. I want my money by this afternoon or I will……… I was so stressed out, I didn’t hear the rest of it. But I knew I’d better get back on that hustle that very night and I did.
The Pimps are strong and unbending. They take over every facet of my life to the fact that I rarely enjoy it. Oh well, looks like The Pimps are still winning. I see I have to accept the fact that the pimps are in control.
The first of the month the rental company wants their money. Next is the power company, then gas company, the car insurance, the car payments and the list goes on and on. Pimps to the right, pimps to the left, pimps all around. And I’m stuck in the middle!! The Pimps are winning!!!! And the hustle goes on. I am PIMPED Out and I’m Tired! HELP! HELP!! HELP!!!
You Pray and try to be positive, but it feels like it does not seem to always work. Sometimes you just want to go to an isolated place and scream, just to get those feelings out. After that, you can hopefully think about your next step.
Any body ever feel this way? Believe me the number is astounding!
Working to pay bills and having nothing left to enjoy life or time with your family, A thought that enters many mines.
What can she do? What can we do?
My only thought right now is to help each other whenever we can and sometimes when we think we can’t?
