Blank Canvas

image

I am a blank canvas
I am a blank black canvas
After many many years I remain black and blank
What has been printed on me is written in black ink
It is there but invisible to all eyes
A message is on me but the message is unknown
I am very far from complete yet also very complete
I am simply a blank canvas
I am simply a blank black canvas
Create of me what you may
But please let it be written in black
Because in the dark the dark does not shine
Let my black be black
And let my blank be blank
Only I do know what I really am

– Edith B.
