7 Billion candles

Human souls are like flames, as gentle and beautiful as candlelight on lonely nights, and just as frail... For with the slightest change in the wind, our flames are doused... With a single pull of the trigger our lives are brought to an end... Alone, we are  weak...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Yet, humanity has discovered that when one flame turns to a hundred, and that hundred turns to a thousand, like wildfire our influence spreads! Growing from a simple flame to a raging inferno! When we come together we become powerful! Transcending mortal limits we become capable of moving mountains and splitting seas! We learn to speak with one another across the globe and come together in numbers greater then history has ever known!                                                                                                                                                                                          So lets scar history with our etheral flame! Scorching the ground before us black as we burn our names into the timeline! Branding the future with our existence so that future generations will never forget, When we come together we are capable of anything!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 And even if we are doused by those against us... Our ashes will remain... And we watch as the smoke rises up to the heavens reminding all those after us that we can't be beaten as we lie in wait for that single spark, that single flame that wll reignite our passions and set the world in motion... For there are seven billion people in this world... Seven billion candles burning brightly and beautifully on their own... Yet it takes all of us to change the world.
