Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry about surviving, love, pain, abuse and feminism. I loved how each poem was moving and powerful and made me relate to things I never knew I could relate to until I read this book.
And though I am not a fan of the author not using proper capitalization (I don’t know if she did it on purpose or if she has an explanation about it, please don’t hesitate to notify me), I loved every bit of her prose and poetry. It showed us, her readers, that her experiences made her stronger in time and I can’t describe this book more, because all I can think about when I try to describe it is POWERFUL.
If you’re a fan of poetry, you should read this.
If you’re not a fan of poetry, you should read this.
Just read it.
This is one of my favorites:
“I thank the universe
everything it has taken
and giving to me
everything it is giving”
