This Poem was written by a youth
at Ferris School for Boys

HAPPINESS is a state of glee,

HAPPINESS is what sets us free.

It's accompanied with a laugh,

No one can stop it, not even the staff.

It's something that starts with a smile!

That we know was hidden all the while!

All you have to do is go an extra mile!

All you have to do is bear through the trial!

If you do these things for others you'll see,

That happiness will spread like the roots of a tree!

That happiness will be impossible to steal!

It will forever be there for you to see and feel!

Happiness will spread like the current fad!

And you can never truly again be sad.
