Why Every Woman Should Read "Milk and Honey"
modamadison

If you're anything like me, Rupi Kaur is your new modern day literary hero. From her metaphoric poetry, to her ability to relate to almost every reader, she will leave you with a new outlook on life. For those of you reading this who haven't had the chance to experience this book, you should head to Amazon and place your order right now. Buy it and place it on your nightstand to read every night before you sleep. Read it in the morning as well. You won't regret it. "Milk and Honey" is a book that relates to women from all walks of life, no matter if you are 16, 36, or 76. Whether you are part of the "loving", "healing", "broken", or "hurting" group, you will find something within her words that inspires you. Kaur tells us all to keep living, keep going despite what we deal with on a daily basis. Living in a time of feminism and the empowerment of women, Kaur writes what many of us will want to teach our future daughters. Our bodies are our own, we're born beautiful, and we should never let a man tell us otherwise. Be comfortable in your own skin, it's the only one you'll ever have. Women should be free to be who they are, and to take pride in having emotions that eventually become words on a page. Order "Milk and Honey", open the first few poems, and smile. Or cry. Whether you are going through an unexpected breakup, or just found the love of your life, you will find something on each page that speaks to you. Kaur makes poetry something that we all should grow to love, instead of the subject that we all hated in high school. The words will make you want more, long after all of the pages have been turned. Let's all celebrate being a woman in this society together, through the words of Kaur. There's always a reason to smile, no matter if you're currently loving, healing, broken, or hurting.
