this is the journey of surviving through poetry this is the blood sweat tears of twenty-one years this is my heart in your hands this is the hurting the loving the breaking the healing, Canadian poet Rupi Kaur’s poetry started as a series on Instagram before Kaur self-published a collected volume, Milk and Honey, which quickly became a US bestseller. 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. Read an exclusive new poem from Rupi Kaur taken from her new collection The Sun and Her Flowers.

Lacking depth
There are consistent and sound feminist statements in this series but I felt it severely lacking in substance, nuance, pleasure.

Not poetry
