“my heart woke me crying last night

how can i help i begged

my heart said

write the book”

-Rupi Kaur

 

Milk and Honey, by Rupi Kaur, is a collection of poems about life, love, and hurt from the eyes of a wise woman. It is divided into four chapters; the hurting, the loving, the breaking, and the healing. Each one is filled with poems about life, loss, and love that are relatable to many women. 24 year old Rupi Kaur was born in India, but moved to Canada when she was only 4. Kaur also does all of the illustrations herself and shows just how wise beyond her years she truly is. The poems are in all lowercase letters and contain only periods for punctuation, if they contain any at all. This book of poems is one of the most honest books I’ve ever read. Kaur completely bares her soul to the reader, holding nothing back, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering reading it.
