“Every time you
tell your daughter
you yell at her
out of love
you teach her to confuse
anger with kindness
which seems like a good idea
till she grows up to
trust men who hurt her
cause they look so much
like you

– to fathers with daughters”

Synopsis

milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

What I think of it

This is the first poetry book I have ever read and my God I loved every page.

I finished this book in less than an hour and it was just one big roller coaster of emotions. I cried, I smiled, I cried some more. I could relate so much to 95% of those poems and it just left me speechless.. in tears.

I’m for sure a fan of Rupi Kaur, I’m even getting one of her poems as a tattoo soon!

I’d recommend this wonderful book if you want to try poetry and if you’re pro-feminism. It’s full of deep and intense poems and it just makes you want to put this book inside your heart so you never lose it.

I loved it, I absolutely loved it, I can’t say it enough
