I am stuck.

Not by choice

but rather simply by consequence.

 

I am

too young and too old

too shy and too bold

too anxious and too calm

too busy and too bored

 

I'm not sure how I got here.

I'm not sure if I am here

or if I'm in-between one place

and the other

stuck in limbo.

 

The space between

this one metaphysical place

and the other

laughs at me.

 

It knows

I can’t be

bothered

to move,

because I don’t

know how.

 

So I am stuck

between one and the

other

but still

nowhere near

the happy medium.
