Poetry Analysis

By: Trevor Hall and Corday Holman

Poem 1

Happiness is the bread of life.


It is essential to our well being.


We could not survive without it.


Ever since the beginning of time we have been extending the hand of happiness to each other.


In very primitive communities, having the help of others in a crisis is a matter of survival.

However, even in today's world where it seems as if we could survive without ever talking to another human being, happiness is important.


Happiness is a prerequisite to sanity. We are social human beings and we need happiness to survive.
