Someone Had To Try

What are you doing?
And why are you doing this?
What is the reason behind it?

'I've decided you are right.
I'm tired of arguing.
And it has become pointless to fight.
I'll follow your lead.
Since you've said you have clearer sight! '

But...
What if I fail?
What will the others then do?

'I have no idea.
That would be up to you.
Wherever you take us...
I'm sure you'll follow through.'

But...
What if I fail?
What will the others then do?

'I guess we'll have to wait to see,
What your leadership proves to be.'

But...
What if I fail?
What will the others then do?

'Are you afraid to lead?
Is that the excuse that you choose? '

Uh...
Uh,
I've grown accustomed,
To critiquing your moves.
I'll be alone in leading.
There will be no one but me,
To make decisions of what I do.
The others will not like me.
And mistakes I might make.
What if I do make a few of them...
And excuses then I can't fake.

'I see!
But it was okay with you...
To see me suffer and bleed.
I am not accustomed to pain at all.
And I am not afraid to lead.'

Then...
Why don't you continue doing what you do.
And I'll stay where I am.
Since that will be easier for me,
To keep the others confused.

'No...
You go ahead.
I want to see how you handle the abuse.
Eventually you'll get use to it.
And the sacrificing too! '

But I am no leader.

'Neither am I.
But someone had to make forward moves.
Someone had to try.
Someone had to rely on faith.
Even though alone they may have cried.'

Wow.
I didn't think of that.
