Jo’s been an artist fifteen years

A lot of late nights, hard work,

blood, sweat, paint fumes, & tears

Pouring his heart out onto his canvas,

as much of a challenge as it all is

He says: “I wouldn’t wanna be doing

something different from this,

It’s what I was born to, it is my bliss”

Due Credit

I heard a songwriter say something that struck me

as so very wrong

How people knew the artists who recorded his songs

but that they didn’t really have a clue

who he was @ all

It really is a heartbreaking plight

When the artists find success,

but the songwriters are forgotten

Like a shadow faded into the night

I don’t know about you

but I would love to see them

get more of the credit they are due
