Do sit down.
Just how have you been?
It’s so nice to see you again.

What is this?
You don’t know who I am?
I admit, it’s been quite a long time.

Shall we say,
I am you in a way.
I’m that voice in the back of your mind.

We stopped talking.
Not my fault of course.
You simply ignored what I said.

Don’t you think
We should work something out?
Without me, life is one bumpy ride.

Now I see.
But don’t come back to me
As your conscience, at least I know I tried.

Sometimes, we have to be reintroduced to things and people to remember them. For some people, their conscience is one of those things they need to get to know again.

I like this, it's simple but in a way very deep. A lot of people never realized that inside of us, there are two existence, whether we acknowledge it or not, it is the self that we often run to when things get tough, goes wrong but when we don't like their answer or their solution, we tend to run away from them. Have a selective amnesia and forget that other being living inside of us. And yet, when we desperately need acknowledgement again, we reintroduce ourselves to this other self once more, until we find another reason to abandon them again.

It has a deep meaning, which I hope others would get to understand when they really read between the lines. :heart:
