These Windows let the questions in And connect me to the feelings Outside The lab. This screen throws personalities And judgement Towards my learning heart. Advertisements
Dots of unknown colour, Stains of never-studied proteins Are my medals. On my chest and around my arm, They Tell a recent story of fight and explosions. Invincible in the way, standing strong through the washings , A Memento of the past and a map to my future.
I opened today the door To trust and uncertainty To give a chance to a future I cannot imagine. In every lab, Peers and rivals Put their word in the closing sentence And hold shaky hands in times of indetermination.
Hard life in they lab Where hard materials and soft dreams are tested I don’t feel I deserve Your pastel smiles and encouragement When my data are a Pollock And my protocol a rollercoaster. Be there and keep quiet To watch the show.
Another day has passed Through my clicks and my printings In the busy lab Who looks forward. Lab animals feed on planning the future And snack on tiny bites of promising mistakes While the mission proceeds.
The same movements performed In the same order worth the same timing To ensure reproducibility. Freeze your critical thinking, Put yours brain on pause And accept the procedure You wrote yourself. Like a robot perform To be able to trust later.
In the dark of the lab My results come to life, Fluorescent lines under the lamp. Loneliness and suspense Are my companions Until the story can be told.
The echo of clashing experiments Fills the lab on this windy day. The dream result has left everybody standing speechless And everybody with a broken heart after days of efforts. Impulses take over and the youngs predict a ruin While the seniors know Another hunt had just started.
Sunny yet cold outside The lab is a warm hug Where all tools rest in place ready to jump up And follow my idea.
