if you were born with the weakness to fall you were born with the strength to rise
This was my first real venture into poetry, and it was a fantastic one. The power of words never fails to surprise me. The first part of the book really resonated with me because of my own personal experiences with my father. I would be filled with tears on the train to and from work, not because of sadness, but because of the relief I felt when I was reminded that I wasn’t alone. Rupi is a genius.
I can only hope to ever be able to control words like Rupi does. Not only that, but her honesty is raw and hard hitting. I felt emotionally maturer after reading Milk and Honey, and she’s blown any reservations I had about poetry far, far away.
