It Started With A Blank Canvas

A pair of newborn eyes
Peeked out of a pink blanket 
To find a hospital room ceiling 
And all was white
It started with a blank canvas 
A life had begun
Simple finger paintings at first 
Graduated to a brush
The top corners filled in
The middle, the edges
The rest lay bare 
Brushes at the ready
A palette of paints aplenty 
Just sitting there, drying 
Is there time to finish 
Fill in the blanks
The stark staring emptiness 
Before she sees white again 
Found on a hospital room ceiling.

Intresting discription. But it puts me in the mind of a Rap song where the lyric goes into "Looking at the roof of the church." get it ? think about it.
