Lupita Nyong’o has had an absolutely incredible year. 12 Years a Slave really catapulted her into the stratosphere of hardcore celebrity, winning her an Oscar, landing her a role as the face of Lancome, getting her an appearance on Sesame Street… crazy!
As the year comes to a close, Lupita paid tribute to it by writing a really cute poem. Here it is!
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.
Merry Christmas :)
