Molly – as she is now known by just one name – will be representing the United Kingdom at Eurovision 2014 with her self composed song “Children of the Universe”.

In an interview yesterday the singer/song writer said that her Eurovision song was inspired by the poem “Words For Life” by Max Ehrmann.

“Often, when I felt like giving up, I would listen to that poem and pick myself back up.”

The poem by Ehrmann is almost a lesson on how we create our own future and how we fit into the wider universe. There is however one passage of the poem that reads


You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.


You can read the full poem HERE

Is this a sign that the fortunes are going to change for the UK at Eurovision?
