She won the Oscar for her role as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave and she graced the cover of PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful issue – Lupita Nyong’o had a very good year.

But not only is she beautiful and talented, she’s got some serious social media game.

Nyong’o, 31, posted a poem to Instagram Monday to accompany a holiday photo. In the Dr. Seuss-inspired caption, she outlined her year and thanked her followers for their support. Check it out:

“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.”
