The 10 Best Poems In Rupi Kaur's Milk And Honey
The Book Castle

Rupi's Kaur's Milk and Honey discusses many important issues about being human. Her poems capture themes of hurting, loving, breaking and healing. Any young woman needs Milk and Honey in her life. Here are some of my all-time favorite poems of hers.

1. For the passionate ones

We all have "fires" in our belly that sometimes people want to put out. But frankly, Rupi Kaur's words let me believe that people who try to tame your greatness are not worth your time, and that to be passionate is to be strong. It'd be weak to allow people to quiet you down.


2. In an ideal world...


I wish guys were like this.


3. If you ever feel like you think you need a guy to complete you...

This poem says a lot. It's so inspiring because I feel like so many girls think they're not complete without a guy. But that shouldn't be the case. We can have someone make us better or make our lives better, but the key word is better. You have to be happy on your own before you have anyone. I especially love how Rupi Kaur has the constant theme of "fire" throughout her poems, because it is so metaphorical for strength, bravery, growth, passion.

4. For anyone who feels rejected


This is my all time favorite poem of hers. It's so short yet so powerful. If there's someone who doesn't see how amazing you are, just know it's them and not you. They just didn't open their eyes.

5. What every girl needs to hear

This poem is so important to read. As young women, I feel like we always compare ourselves to others. But most of the time it's something superficial. This is a reminder that you're so much more than what you look like. That your intelligence, your bravery make you beautiful.

6. Be kind


So many times we try to treat others how they treat us. If someone is rude, you'll be rude back. If someone is giving you a hard time, give them a hard time. But that's not how we should be. Be the bigger person. This poem is so important because it captures exactly that.

7. Be water

Be water. Be gracefully strong.

8. Don't trust just anyone

Oftentimes, we think we're safe. But this poem is so powerful because we might think we're safe, but we're not. Be sceptical- don't be naive. You don't know what real safety is until you find it.

9.

Rupi Kaur explores the theme of self-love a lot in her book. This poem expresses exactly that. Don't search for someone to complete you because you won't be successful. Find it within yourself to feel perfectly whole and learn to be okay with it.

10. Don't fall so fast

This poem is so important to read. Sometimes you fall for a guy because he tells you exactly what you want to hear. So you have hope and you believe him. This happens a lot to me. But you have to learn not to fall too fast. It's easy to be idealistic and believe him, but the end result will most likely crush you even more.


Rupi Kaur's poems contain some of the most important and inspiring words I've ever read. Give Milk and Honey a read if you're ever feeling a lack of inspiration. I'm not kidding when I say that this book will change your life.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
