Stalling

At a standstill, that’s how my life
appears right now. I cannot explain
this unfamiliar yet familiar numbness.

I’m like a car full of gasoline
that is stalling as it’s traveling up
a not too steep hill.

Here I am, attempting to succeed,
with all my might, but can’t seem to
to propel any further than ordinary
it’s a battle to reach a respectable milestone.
