Okay, I want you to know, this is terrible. I am trying something new that is making my brain stretch, and it is all Quickly’s fault. The prompt is to write a diminishing poem, where words diminish each line and still kind of rhyme because the next line has a part of a whole, similar to this:
Anyway, mine, as I said, is terrible, but it is a learning process. So here it is in all it’s not-so-glory:
What makes some indifferent
and others so very different

and make the negativity shush
getting us be the best of us.

because people are quite able
to tell truth and beauty from bull
