Milk And Honey Review

Milk And Honey Review

Fanasy Nelson, Staff Reporter

Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry written by Rupi Kaur about an experience of violence, abuse, love, and loss. Each chapter serves a different purpose. There are four different chapters: the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing. Each section touches upon the way she handles and deals with pain.

Rupi Kaur is 26 years old. She immigrated to Canada as a child and has since then settled in Toronto. Milk and Honey was published November 4,2014. Her words were very powerful to many and heal different heartaches. The book sold over three million copies and Rupi’s career took off.

The book of poems is really relatable to a lot of people. She talks about love and how sometimes it can be the happiest thing that could happen to you but also one of the saddest things that could happen. She takes you through the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere you go if you are just willing to  look.

My favorite quote in the book would be, “You have to stop searching for why at some point you have to leave it alone.” To me that is a very powerful quote because when people leave your life, you always question why? But people enter your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime and some people are just not meant to be in it.

Milk and Honey was a really good book and I recommend students to read it. Rupi Kaur also has other books out one similar to Milk and Honey is The Sun and Her Flowers. So be on the lookout for when Rupi publishes other books of poems.
