The 12 Years a Slave star thanked fans for their continued support throughout the past year.

The perfect goddess known as Lupita Nyong'o has had a busy year. She burst on the scene just one year ago for her role in 12 Years a Slave and swept up a slew of awards and nominations for her performance. She has transformed into a beauty and feminist icon right before our very eyes, speaking frequently on women's issues.

Now, the actress has another message for her fans, which comes in the form of a poem she posted on Instagram. The rhyming poem quotes Dr. Suess and encourages everyone to follow their dreams in the new year:

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.

Happy holidays to you, too, Lupita! Never change.
