Everyone gets a chance to knock,
only some are let in.
when it is my turn,
I knock once.
once for the one individual each of us can be.
I knock twice.
twice for the two genders that society tries to define us with.
I knock six times.
six times for the six races society tries to judge us by.
I knock seventeen times.
seventeen times for the teachers and students that were slaughtered in Florida for wanting an education.
I knock nineteen times.
nineteen times for the amendment that allows me to put forth a vote that represents my country.
I knock on last time.
one last time so that they know I will come back.
and I will never stop knocking.
