Blank Canvas

Given a blank canvas, what would I be?

Gay, straight, female, or male?

Would I be black, white, brown

Or some shade in between?

Would I be spiritual, seeking out God

Or would I a loner, just me and my dog.

Would I be English or American no less,

Or a displaced Palestinian, or even a Kerd?”

Would I be poor, wealthy, or rich?

Or would I be homeless and left in the ditch.

A prisoner, a slave, they’re one and the same.

The government don’t care,

To them, it’s a game.

Given a blank canvas, what would I be?

Given that choice, I’d rather be me.
