Leah is 16 and a year 12 student from the UK who is passionate about improving mental health and politics.
I know stories of superheroes who can do whatever they choose,
But I don't know how to heal a mental bruise,
I know many stories of happily ever after,
But I still often struggle to find laughter.Sometimes all I want is to talk but I feel like I'd only be talking to myself.
Sometimes all I want is help but then I'd feel I've lost myself.
Sometimes all I want is comfort but then I feel I'll have made it about myself.Everyday has its ups and downs,
Starting a conversation can be what counts.
Let me know it's okay to feel this way.
But while remembering our situations are not the same,
Give support and advice without the blame
