Setting Free the Hummingbird
by Daniel Haisley
One day I caught a Hummingbird
Humming a beautiful tune
And felt a million miles away
Looking down on the world from the moon.
And in that moment of tranquillity
I contemplated how my life fell apart
How I corrupted a soul that once was innocent
And hardened a once tender heart.
I wonder how it could have been different
And despair of things that weren’t fair
How life likes to dish out hard knocks
Knowing well I’ve had my fair share.
But this is not time to be weak
Or speak a negative word,
I think I should keep these thoughts to myself
And set free the Hummingbird.
Setting Free the Hummingbird is taken from the book of poems, ‘From Behind The Door’ published in Great Britain by Amazon. The writing of these poems by Daniel demonstrates the power of poetry and its ability to provide those who have temporarily lost their way in life with a voice.
