Lupita Nyong'o Reflects On Her 'One Of A Kind' Year: Read The Heartfelt Poem

'May you live out your dreams!' the actress tells her fans.

Is there anyone out there who has had a better 2014 than Lupita Nyong'o?

In 12 months, the 31-year-old went from relative unknown to Oscar-winning actress thanks to her supporting role in "12 Years A Slave." She was also named People magazine's Most Beautiful, was one of the best dressed celebrities on the red carpet and -- you know what? That's more than enough proof. Like, raise your hand if you had a better year.

No hands should be raised. Except yours, Lupita.

Needless to say, Nyong'o is incredibly moved by what she has experienced. So moved, she took to Instagram on Monday (December 22) to share a poem she wrote describing the "one of a kind" year she has had.

The words echo the inspiring speeches she gave at the 86th Academy Awards ("Your dreams are valid.") and Essence's Black Women in Hollywood event ("I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty. Black beauty. Dark beauty."), and might even inspire us all to do something, well, inspiring in 2015 -- or at least keep our New Year's resolutions.

Read the full poem 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.
