Poet Spotlight: Rupi Kaur

by - 10:07 AM


Hey, young bloods! On today's edition of Poet Spotlight, I'll be talking about Rupi Kaur, one of my new favorite poets.

When I finally got my hands on her poem book milk and honey, I was expecting good poems.

  5. I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?
