I’m sure many of you have heard of the poetry book milk and honey by rupi kaur, if you have not, you should definitely check it out because it is absolutely incredible. This book helped me to rediscover my love for poetry, maybe it could do the same for you, or perhaps you will discover a love you never knew you had.

These are a few of my favourite poems in the milk and honey poetry book:

how is it so easy for you
to be kind to people
he asked
milk and honey dripped
from my lips as i answered
cause people have not
been kind to me

- rupi kaur

quotes, art, and milk and honey image

if you were born with
the weakness to fall
you were born with
the strength to rise
- rupi kaur

quotes, book, and happy image

you tell me to quiet down cause
my opinions make me less beautiful
but i was not made with a fire in my belly
so i could be put out
i was made heavy
half blade and half silk
difficult to forget but
not easy for the mind to follow
- rupi kaur

quotes, book, and milk and honey image

it was when i stopped looking for the foundation of home within others
and lifted the foundations of home within myself
i found there were no roots more intimate
than those between a mind and a body
that have decided to be whole
- rupi kaur

quotes, love, and book image

to hate
is an easy lazy thing
but to love
takes strength
everyone has
but not all are
willing to practice
- rupi kaur

quotes, happiness, and hurt image

Well that’s it guys, I really hope you enjoyed it!
