Lupita Nyong'o Writes a Poem to Reflect on Her Amazing Year

Lupita Nyong’o has had one of the biggest breakout years of any actor and she has taken to Instagram to share an original poem to reflect on her amazing success.

“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,” Lupita started the poem. “I had family and friends, and colleagues galore, now I have fans, plus a million and four!”

Lupita will have another big year in 2015 with the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book.

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.
