The debut collection from the ‘Instapoet’ of a generation

this is the journey of

surviving through poetry

this is the blood sweat tears

of twenty-one years

this is my heart

in your hands

this is

the hurting

the loving

the breaking

the healing,

Canadian poet Rupi Kaur’s poetry started as a series on Instagram before Kaur self-published a collected volume, Milk and Honey, which quickly became a US bestseller.

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose; deals with a different pain; heals a different heartache.

Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

Read an exclusive new poem from Rupi Kaur taken from her new collection The Sun and Her Flowers.
