Preamble of the Heart

I’m a woman.
“Come on, baby.”
“Shake it for us, baby.”
Do that dance you do so well for us, baby.”
But I still want to start a revolution. Somebody’s got to.
There’s too much beauty in the world going to waste.
Too much talent going unnoticed.
Too much creativity being crushed beneath the wheel of corporate branding and what’s trending.
But it’s time to wake up.
I looked into the eyes of people and I saw helplessness.
I saw hopelessness.
I saw humans searching for a way out. 
Because when those Fascist dictators posing as righteous men come for you with their big leather boots to shut you up, to put a gag in your mouth, you better be prepared to fight for what you believe in.
You better be prepared to die for what you believe in.
I want to start a revolution.
Are you with me?

It’s been a long time coming, but soon I will post my review for Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour, which will air on Showtime next month. This is a quick preview of that epic production, and a reminder of what can still inspire me.
