Knock knock knock

Who is it?

It’s me

Me who?

Your conscience. 

What do you want?

I want to help you 

Why?

Because you need me

No I don’t !

Yes you do

Why is that?

Because without me you’re empty

Empty…. empty of what?

Of feelings….of compassion 

….

Knock knock knock

Who is it?

It’s me

Me who?

Your conscience 

You again?

Yes

What do you want?

We’re not done talking

Urgh! why is that?

You haven’t asked me anything

Ask you what?

You tell me

I’ve nothing to tell you

Yes you do

You’re right! Go away

….

Knock knock knock

Go away!

I can’t 

Why?

Because I’m  your conscience

So?

I’ll leave when we’ll make peace

I’ve got no quarrel with you

Are you sure?

Yeah

I don’t think so

Why is that?

Because you haven’t asked me anything

For the love of God, what am i supposed to ask you?

Oh now you mention God!

What do you want from me?

I want peace and understanding.

So why do you need me?

I don’t need you; you need me.

Do I?

Yes you do.

…. and how is that suppose to work?

It works by asking my advice before doing your usual mischiefs 

Oh I get it! You want me to knock on your door and ask you if I can live my life as I want it

No. I want you to seek my help.

I don’t need your help. Now live me alone.

You don’t get it, do you? I am here to help you be what you’re meant to become. And you what would that be?

A noble person

…. And what am I now?

A selfish, heartless jurk, without ethics, without principles. You sin all day without any regrets or doubts. You live thinking that you’re eternal while you’re not.

…. I haven’t noticed that.

I know. That’s why I’m here.

…. Will you help me?

That was the question you were meamt to ask me. Of course I will help you, that’s my job.

Ok. When do we start?

We have already started from the moment you heard me knock.
