Madonna left my favorite song by her off her new greatest hits album Celebration and I’m pissed! This song is deep… It’s one of those great records that holds a lot of weight for its message…
Our dreams and aspirations define our future (for the most part) and the bigger we dream the more we can see those dreams become a reality, no matter what the situation. My dream have always been to be someone who makes a difference in the world. Money and fame is great, but when I can say I made a difference then I’ll know that all this stuff I’m doing now is worthwhile.
I’ll never say goodbye to yesterday because that is part of what makes me who I am. I look forward to a brighter future because that’s my destiny! I see only what matters the most to me and that’s making a difference.
So basically this song is inspiration for me. It’s a record I grew up on and to this day cherish for keeping me focused. I’ll never forget the people that made me who I am… The influences, the people that love me, the people that hurt me, the people that helped me, the people that are gone, but made an impact… I’ve learned so much from so many and I’m a product of a “Beautiful Struggle” that’s only going to pay off in the end…
So when I look back and think about that imaginary “Playground” I’ll remember it and smile and say, “this ain’t so bad now that it’s my reality…”
And did i mention I’m pissed at Madonna for leaving this off???? Yeah… I had to say it again because it’s a major bad look! 😦
But I wish that you
Were here with me
Well then there’s hope yet
I can see your face
In our secret place
You’re not just a memory
Say goodbye to yesterday [the dream]
Those are words I’ll never say [I’ll never say]
