Please listen to Paloma Faith’s poem first and then read my poem afterwards.
“Evolution” ~ Paloma Faith
(feat. Samuel L. Jackson)
There is a beauty in the distant sound of a weeping man. There’s wonder in your child’s eyes, or maybe your future child’s eyes. And many things you may remember that you had, that you lost, that you let slip through your fingers, so cherish them all.
You are the poor, the refugee, the bloody victim. You are the power, the winner and the fighter. Breathe in, you’re lucky to
Be the beauty, the memory, the past, the past, the present and the future, be infinite. Do something, say something, believe in something, but most of all, know you can change things. Yes, you. What are you waiting for? Do not be fearful of evolution, the time is now!

Extinction? Evolution? Extinction?
Time is now!
Beauty do something!
Distant sound say something!
Weeping man believe in something!
Wonder in your child’s future eyes!
Remember: power you had!
Winner you lost
and let the fighter slip through your fingers.
So cherish, breathe in,
know you can change things.
You’re lucky to!
But most of all,
What are you waiting for?
Do not be fearful!
