One-Third of My Life

One-third of my life
I give to my education
And now I ask me
What did I achieve?
All the books, all the teachers
Did they teach me affection?
No!
All the books, all the teachers
Did they teach me comparison?
Yes!
All the books, all the teachers
Did they teach me to trust?
No!
All the books, all the teachers
Did they teach me competition?
Yes!
All the books, all the teachers
Did they clear my confusion?
No!
They were just an infusion of confusion
All the books, all the teachers
Did they teach me compassion?
No!
All the books, all the teachers
Did they teach me Apathy?
No!
They made me a source of sympathy
And sit me down on the fire of
Depression, Jealousy, Greed and stupidity
All the books, all the teachers
Set me apart from my soul
And now for the rest of my life
I struggle to de-educate me
So as to know me
And free me from the clutches of
All the teachers I meet
All the books I read
Coz I don’t need
A civilized life
I need a wild life
I need my life
Not the life
Of teachers I meet
