The Sonnet of the Bumblebee

The Sonnet of the Bumblebee

You went against their theories, you broke all their rules

By soaring above them, just out of reach.

You laughed as they stared, those arrogant fools

Eager to name your scientific breach.

If you let them catch you it might be fun

Allow one to hold you; small greedy hand.

And just when he thinks the game has been won

You move forward with your martyrs stand.

You sting the bastard who’s trying to steal

The secrets behind your majestic wing.

One venomous prick, with quick pain he’ll reel

Squealing retreat from your dignified sting.

They actually thought you’d let truth be known

Uncivilized man, your secret to own?

-Angie Kopshy

September 19, 2013…today I am 38…

The secret to life can’t be found on an infomercial in the middle of the night

The secret to love won’t be awarded after jumping through every hoop just right.

If life was that simple, would there really be a point?

If life was that easy, we’d all be rolling a joint.

————————————————

You gotta live every day like it could be your last.

You gotta love wholeheartedly regardless of your past.

You gotta laugh with all your might.

You gotta cry, bleed and stand up for what’s right.

(someday soon Stoneface Honey will record the rest of this song)

Ok, I know I normally post quick affirmations or quotes that you can put in your pocket and read throughout the day, but I wanted to share a project I completed yesterday. This song helped me get through some of the crazy days of 2012..

Dedicated to everyone picking up the pieces after the tragedies of 2012.  While holding those lost in our hearts, may we make 2013 a beautiful year.
