What does it mean to be a light in a World of Darkness?

What does it take to light the torch? How much weight will you have to carry to shelter others inside the light of your torch?
In the face of that burden, will you go out like candle or will your torch become a campfire? A bonfire? A conflagration burning in the night? Will it stop finding fuel and burn out by itself?
