milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split 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

“we began

with honesty

let us end 

in it too



This book is divided into four chapters and each chapter has a specific reasoning behind it. The four parts of the book include; the hurting, the loving, the breaking, and the healing. The concept of this book is so amazing and beautiful that anyone could read this and fall in love with her words. Everything about this book is just so raw, it’s brutal, and most of all it’s beautiful, If you are to read at least one book of poetry this book should be it. This book was a different read for me, every page had a drawing to go with the poems and I thought that was very unique.

“don’t mistake

salt for sugar

if he wants to 

be with you

he will

it’s that”

When I read this book I felt empowered of some form, I see feminity and a guide for all women. l can relate to the majority of these poems and that made me felt connected to this book. It’s honest and meaningful, I can’t even express how much I love this book. Every chapter of this book was a guide, a guide that you should read. This was an eye-opening book for me and I have the intentions of reading it again later down this year. Would I recommend this? Of course, I would, without a doubt. If you haven’t read this stop what you’re doing and head to the nearest bookstore and get you a copy! I promise you won’t regret it.

“neither of us is happy

but neither of us wants to leave

so we keep breaking one another

and calling it love”
