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.
