Brief Description of “Milk and Honey”
The book is divided 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.
The best seller book by Rupi Kaur is a collection of moving poetry; every page is an emotion and every line pulls on the strings of the heart. Reading the poems makes you feel uncomfortably human at times; while the author writes about sexual abuse and assault.
The best part of this book has to be the little accompanying doodles. The poetry is descriptive enough to paint your brain some pictures but the images really help calm your soul. Each page is power and no space is wasted.
After reading, I felt like putting myself first–I need to be slightly more selfish and invest in my future instead of letting people push me around. Take action and control your own life!
The author, Rupi Kaur writes about the importance of regaining your confidence and learning to start a fire; become the light of the earth; be the change you want to see in the world. People will love you despite your flaws–just keep pushing and keep living a life worth living.
