I Won't Follow You

Here, take this scripture
And hold it for me for some time
Those laborers bathed in sweat
Seem to be telling something to me
I must go there first.
Hey! You are photographers? 
Please, take a snap of tears
In my mother’s eyes –
After her departure 
They will tell me the meaning
Of compassion.
No! I am not happy at all
With the teaching of your school
For with the growth of knowledge
Ignorance is still not going away
And learners are blinkered
Like horses.
Tell me the truth!
Did you not spend
Half of your life hating me?
I won’t follow your steps
Because I have to reach
My abode before night falls
