Oscar-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o gave her fans a special gift of words for Christmas, which she did by sending a personally-written and heartwarming poem via Instagram to all her fans and supporters.
The full text of the poem can be read below:
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.
