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.
