Lupita Nyong'o is a poet, but you probably didn't know it – until now!
The Oscar-winning actress is wishing us all a "Happy Holidays" in a sweet way. On Monday, she posted a poem on her Instagram. The poem is reminiscent of Dr. Seuss, and Lupita even quotes him at the end of it.
She sums up her year in a few words: "This year was one of a kind and a kind one to me."
This year, Lupita accomplished many feats. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years a Slave, was the Glamour Woman of the Year,People's Most Beautiful and the new face of Lancome.
She also gained over a million Instagram followers, and she references her fans in the poem, "I keep posting 'cause I know that you care, and I care to post when I know that you're there."
For the new year, Lupita wishes everyone, "Peace, love, joy, laughter beams and living out your dreams."
Here is Lupita's entire heartwarming poem. It's a gift that will help give your holiday spirit a lift!

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.
