An LED, Not Your Candle

They said, 
Be a candle,
Ignite your wick,
Let your light shine,
Piercing all darkness
As far as your ray can go
I said,
I can't be a candle,
That burns itself out.
Turning to vapours,
While giving you light.
Melting inch by inch.
Till nothing remains.
Instead,
An LED light I will be
With Powerjack and internal battery.
Illuminating your world,
Brighter than a candle
When my battery dies,
Will plug-in and recharge.
Then radiant as ever,
I will spread my light for you.
