    make it your own

    Hi there,


    "and life is gonna drop you down like the limbs of a tree,
    it sways and it swings and it bends until it makes you see
    are you ready to jump?
    all work and no fighting I'll find a place of my own
    it sways and swings and it bends until you make it your own"
    this is a song by madonna and I would like to know what she means by
    until you make it your own.
    Thank you

    "and life is gonna drop you down
    like the limbs of a tree,
    it sways and it swings and it bends
    until it makes you see

    She is using a tree as a metaphor for life. Like limbs of a tree, life swings and sways (it is unpredictable) until you can see what is going on (until you mature). It will seem like it swings and sways until you get it under control and can see what is really going on.
