Milk and Honey, Rupi Kaur: Book Review
This heartfelt collection of poems hit the shelves November of I saw milk and honey in the store and decided to embrace my poetic side and purchase it. Needless to say, I was baffled with what I found folded into the pages. I was expecting an inspirational slightly tacky read much like how I viewed poetry prior to this. What I found was vulnerability, startling bluntness, and a pure and raw story laced into the pages of Rupi Kaur's poetry. Kaur breaks her book into four parts; the hurting, the loving, the breaking and the healing.
