It gets better.


A phrase as common as white socks

'It gets better'

stock words, suiting every situation.


Abusive father?

'It gets better'

Careless mother?

'It gets better'

No meal for a week?

'It gets better'


Why tell me 'It gets better'?

Do you fight my inner deamons?

Have you lived my strife?


No. It doesn't get better!

Life moves forward

Humanity decides their fate.


Choose to live better.

Think twice before repeating the


'It gets better'
