Milk & Honey is a book full of poems by Rupi Kaur. It is split into four sections: The Hurting, The Loving, The Breaking, and The Healing. Each section has beautiful poetry related to its theme. On the back of the book she writes:
“this is the journey of
surviving through poetry
this is the blood sweat tears
of twenty-one years
this is my heart
in your hands
I bought this book and read it in the same night and then again the next day. I’m suggesting it to all of my friends and family,because it is just that good. It is poetry put into today’s relatable love issues, without the entire Shakespeare aspect. Between the ideas of “talking,” casual sex, and nobody ever getting asked out on a date anymore, our entire generation needs a read like this to help us realize we’re not crazy. She writes about rape, first love, self confidence, feminism, and so much more. This book is such a beautiful read and will move anybody. I really can’t sell this book enough, go to the closest book store and purchase this book and discover the beauty of Kaur’s words!
