Conscience

A poem I wrote as a senior in high school '04

You don’t remember me

I am your conscience

In fact you don’t know me

And maybe you won’t remember

Me even if you meet me

When you need me…

Even if you “don’t”…

I’m still there.

Don’t set your heart on

Whatever grabs your fancy

It crowds in and pushes me

<To a corner>

[And] I am hidden

Yet am not the one hiding

I’m always there

Even when you believe you don’t

<Need me>

I am there to call upon

I don’t die…

I refuse to…

I am immortal…

I am a Spirit…

I reside in your heart

And resonate in your mind…

 

The End
