A new answer to an old riddle

I wrote a riddle when I was a teenager.

Those that have no need of me
Never do anything without me
Those that starve of me
Never give me a second thought.

If you want to figure guess at it. Don’t read any further than this until you’re done.

The answer is
your conscience.

At least, it was eleven years ago.

In the shower just now,
I thought of the riddle again,
and the new answer was
love.

It’s always been love.
