Poet Spotlight: Rupi Kaur


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. My expectations were far surpassed as I stumbled upon a collection of beautiful words, breathtakingly and honestly real. Her book, which focuses on the abuse of women in today's society, needs to be required reading in every Gender and Sexuality Studies course. Here are some of my favorite pieces:

  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?
