Paragon

The warlock
would always write
story
after story
about the Light.
His eternal search
for it
led him into Darkness
and it is there
where he perished.
His suffering
was not born from this world
but from himself.
As I blow
the dust of the ages
from his musty tomes,
I realized
that he had his salvation
within,
as well.
You see,
what the warlock
could not know
was that
one may never find the Light
unless,
like the candle,
they become their own fuel.
