Within the depths of gloom and despair darkness engulfs dreams and life. Children walk blindly, heading towards unseen ledges plummeting into oblivion. Men rant wildly as women scream with woe. Jealously and corruption feed upon the souls of the weary and foolish. The fear of loss and seclusion grab the hearts of the people. Echoing cries rebound of the walls of enslavement and eventually fade to murmurs. But, if one individual, one hero steps forward to light the way, ignite a fire, then not all is lost. The warmth of a single spark could melt the cage of ice. Light shines brightest in the dark. Be that light.
Candle in the Cavern
