Backing off

You wish me to stop
and give you space,
let you choose
how to run this race.

How I ask?
Do I close my eyes,
hoping and praying
you'll win the prize?

Should I block my ears
as I turn my back?
Choose not to help
where I see you lack?

What would our brother
our saviour do?
Allow you to stray
until your out of view?

Surely not so
and neither can I,
for its him I follow
and shall till I die?

I'll calm my reaction
and try not to judge,
I'll lead by example
with help from above.
