1. a Visual Essay by Eli Guerron...

    (play it full screen and with sound)

    First off, I would like to thank you for watching this short film, entitled "It Gets Better."

    This film is a visual poem, one that focuses on the hard times every single one of us has gone through in the process of discovering who we want to be, dry patches in the journey of finding out who it is we really are...

    Isolation. Desolation. Courage. Endurance. And in the final moment, grasp of self-realization, represented in simple elements of visual design.

    I have been working on this short for months, and one of the nicest moments I've experienced
    was on 10/12/10, when I listened to Joel Burns give a speech encouraging those who suffer dire situations to remember one thing- "it gets better".

    Listening to Joel, I realize that this film might not change the situation. It might not end suffering or change the mentality of the perpetrators, but what it CAN do is help the perpetrated to become stronger, arming them with a positive attitude and a resonant hope for the future.

    I would like to thank Joel Burns for his inspiration, and to all our silent collaborators.

    Please feel free to contact me at itgetsbetterfilm@gmail.com if you're interested in screenings,
    or if you would like to get a higher version of this file for your own postings or sharing on your websites.

    Remember to thank those who are still fighting, still strong, still walking that beautiful journey
    and discovering themselves... As I leave, all I can say is, "It gets better"...

    In the memory of those who are no longer at our sides, fighting for us... in our hearts.

    "...it gets better..."

METAMORPHOSIS

Go! Flies away
Raven has not seen,
No dreams or feel!
With solitary monk
Usual black,
What, no time,
If it makes life
And this lost cause
What is happiness
That same fearless
You will not find
What search anytime soon.
But find,

BLACK RAVEN

Go! Flies away
Raven has not seen,
No dreams or feel!
With solitary monk
Usual black,
What, no time,
If it makes life
And this lost cause
What is happiness
That same fearless
You will not find
What search anytime soon.
But find,
In the distant world of dreams,
The peace that at times,
Briefly
Does not remember the pain
But the heat
A love that never was ...

    The mage hath wrought by his art
    A billion shapes in the sun.
    Look through to the heart of his heart,
    And the many are shapes of one!
    An end to the art of the mage,
    And the cold grey blank of the prison!
    An end to the adamant age!
    The ambrosial moon is arisen.
