150.Knock

Knock, the door will open,
Knock hard, they are busy,
Whiling away their time,
Gossiping among themselves.

Weighed down by worklessness,
They may have dozed off,
Knock hard, shout aloud,
Easily they will not wake up.

They may have listened,
But they will not respond,
They may be gauging your resolve,
May be assessing your persistence.

They need to be sure that
If shouts and knocks fail to work,
You will be ready to break the door,
Only then they will get up,
Only then they will open the door.

Well written, a very nice poem Onkarji!!

The poem is inspirational as it explains the "never give up" attitude.
