This week’s poem, called Know Who You Are, is by John Radford.

Knowing who you are is knowing who you are not,

and doing the best that you can with what you have got.

It’s never too late to be who you might have been,

it’s better to die for a cause than to live your life for a dream.

If you cause your own storm don’t moan when it starts to rain,

to get revived you have to sort what fills from what drains.

Knowing who you are is knowing who you are not,

and doing the best that you can with what you have got.

The pain that you feel today can be you’re strength for tomorrow,

your future is better than your past your best days are yet to follow.

There is a light in the tunnel but it’s not an oncoming train,

so don’t wait for the storm to pass learn to sing in the rain.

Knowing who you are is knowing who you are not,

and doing the best that you can with what you have got.

You can look and don’t see but you can’t see if you don’t look,

a room without a window is like a house that doesn’t have a book.

Act how you want to be and you will soon be the way that you act,

it’s not about what you go through it’s about the way that you react.

Knowing who you are is knowing who you are not,

and doing the best that you can with what you have got.
