Lupita Nyong’O Reflects on Her Year via Poem
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’O has closed out her amazing 2014 with a poem.
The 12 Years a Slave actress has posted her thoughts and feelings about an amazing 12 months, which saw her win an Academy Award, land roles in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book and top a handful of top fashion lists, on Instagram.
The poem begins, “This year was one of a kind, and a kind one to me/There was lots to be done, and a whole lot to see/I had family and friends, and colleagues galore/Now I have fans, plus a million and four!/You tweet and you post, and you instagram too/You chat, comment, draw – you just do what you do.”
This year was one of a kind, And a kind one to me. There was lots to be done, And a whole lot to see. I had family and friends, And colleagues galore, Now I have fans, Plus a million and four! You tweet and you post, And you instagram too. You chat, comment, draw, You just do what you do. And though I don't answer 'Cause time is a-tickin', Know that you matter By the posts that I'm pickin'. I keep posting 'Cause I know that you care, And I care to post When I know that you're there. So this season, Though I know your name not, I'm happy I got you, And that I gave what you got. I wish for you peace, Love, joy, laughter beams, And in the new year, May you live out your dreams! (And as Dr. Seuss says:) "If things start happening, don't worry, don't stew, just go right along and you'll start happening too." Love, Lupita N.
Lupita was recently named Best Celebrity Body of 2014 by readers of Fitness magazine and is set to star opposite Selma‘s David Oyelowo in the big screen adaptation of critically-acclaimed romance novel Americanah.
