Small World

Written by: Abi Morgan

Nearly an adult yet not ready at all
My world has shrunk down to a tiny ball
Hopeless, helpless dark and bleak
They make me feel stupid, ashamed and weak
Ashamed of what I do, say behave
Ashamed that I get upset, can't be brave
The awful sense that it has all gone wrong,
That I've left it too late and far too long
Knowing my life will be some bad compromise
Makes me frustrated, tears well in my eyes
I wonder why I bother at all
When my world has shrunk into a tiny ball.
