Art of experiment

In need, for fun
By demand, by curiosity 
If we don't try 
We will never know

From solid base, or rely on instinct
For good reason, or desperate action
If we don't start
We will never move

Proving hypothesis, testing quality
Finding fact, exploring possibility
Maybe it is difficult
But don't make it complicated

Whether risky decision, whether genius solution
Whether result of patience, whether hard work exercise
It is not about courage
It is dedication 

In unknown territory, or taboo subject
Even called crazy, or against the rule
If we failed
It just another wrong way

Whether money, whether fame
Whether self satisfaction, whether world's change
If we succeed
Let's prepare for another goal

Because rooted jealousy, because childish rivalry
Misplaced sentiment, or helplessly narrow mind
Even if we are right
There must be some foolish denial

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
