Martyr Fire (original story)

I'm ready to start spewing out literary crap again. This is probably going to be pretty dark. I feel like this is the best idea I've had in a while. Enjoy, and tell me how much it sucks / what you think in the comments.

Chapter 1

Facts Don't Lie

There are a lot of things you probably know, but don't think about.

For instance, one day, you will die. Everyone you know will be dead.

One day, the Sun will burn out. Die. Like you and me.

One day, the Earth will be destroyed.

You may ask why I bring this up.

The world's human population has doubled between 1800 and 1927. DOUBLED. We keep growing. We are a plague and we evolve to avoid whatever medicine is thrown at us.

And we show no signs of stopping anytime soon.

This is why I have devoted my life to one simple, noble goal: saving the human race.

I am disliked, called such cruel names as "evil" and "crazy".

You don't understand. It hurts. My heart aches for your compassion, for you to WAKE UP!

...Ignorance is bliss, I suppose.

No matter. Like a phoenix, you will rise again, but you will have learned your lesson. I am the medicine.

I am not just medicine. I am the cure to everything. I am a GOD. Do you understand?

I am not sorry. I do not feel scared of the future.

Because the future is mine.

Whether you agree with me or not, I know what I must do. Whether I am recorded as a hero or a madman, I know what I must do.

My story may be different from what you expect. Many will look at me with fear and hate.

The enlightened few will know I have lived the life you, the life everyone is too scared too live.

My name is Elias Ryan, and this is my story.

The story of a martyr's desperate struggle for his race's very existence.
