Quality That Shines


Slipping to slide does not end an influence known,
Of those who are followed...
And have shown repeatedly to produce quality.
Since a quality that shines from them,
All the time...
Is assured.
It is only the ones accustomed to a mediocrity done,
And its doing to appease those increasingly on the scene...
Advocate for more of it with a rating to have this rise to heights.
