Lorn's Story - Expression

As someone who has struggled with anxiety in the past

I realized very quickly that a solution would not happen fast

No matter what I did, no matter where I went,

I was so self-conscious, I was often too afraid to vent

I needed someone to talk to, someone to lend an ear

It was very difficult for me as I kept quiet for many a year

It continued to get worse, my stomach always in knots

It finally came to a head when I entertained some dark thoughts

Entering University provided me with a fresh start

Maybe now I can work through these feelings that continued to tare me apart

I was finally able to open up, finally able to articulate

As that faithful day soon came where I shed all that shoulder weight

And on January 25th, 2017

Those closest to me would bare witness to my first attempt to come clean

I was able to share my struggle, to open up about my fight

It was at that very moment that I felt as though the future was truly bright

My story told in rhyme might confuse many of you

But my wish through all of this is that you all see what you can do

If we support one another, nobody will be able to downplay

The importance of the here and now, the significance of Bell Let’s Talk Day
