You do not see me for I am not your shadow
Yet it is you that I furtively, doggedly follow
You do not hear me for I am not your voice
Yet I dictate your actions and your choice.
I am always there looking from the outside in
Even though you are oblivious in your daily din
I observe I track; I keep check to always ensure
By being your conscience, you, I forever assure
That I shall keep you on the path, straight and narrow
Even when you give up when in misery you wallow
I shall be your inner voice, shielding you from sin
I promise to always keep looking from the outside, in.
