Poet’s Corner


Live Some More
By Natalie Wambui

Life goes fast
Soon you’ll be old
Maybe now you are young
But, at the end of it all
Your age is what you make out of it
Live some more, have some fun

Embrace your mistakes, embrace your drama
You’ll laugh about it, many years down the line
Forgive everyone, and make peace
You don’t want your past to ruin your future
Live some more, have some fun

Take a chance, take a risk, break away
You have nothing to lose
If it’s your life, you might lose it tomorrow
Your life is just but borrowed
Live some more, have some fun

Think of how you want to be remembered
If it were in a movie setting, would it be worth watching?
If your death was tomorrow, what would your today be like?
Just live some more, live today, before it’s too late, live some more

Natalie Wambui moved to Martha’s Vineyard from Kenya in January with her mother. At 13, she is a published author and is currently working on her fourth book. 

For the next several weeks, the Poets’ Corner will be featuring the work of Island teens. 

Poets with a connection to Martha’s Vineyard are encouraged to submit poems to curator Laura Roosevelt at ldroosevelt@gmail.com.



  1. Natalie is young but authentic, she is a true definition of age is just but a number. You are going places girl
