This line has both a literal and metaphorical meaning to it. The literal - He will continue with his career as a poet, diverging from his lineage of "Digging". The metaphorical - This line is a declaration of his independence from his father and grandfather's job, and his will to follow his own path, metaphorically "Digging" with his poetry in his own way. His skill at "Digging" can only be comparable to his father and grandfather only in a poetic aspect. Btw I might be wrong, but everything is open to interpretation.
