I don't know where to begin. Listen, as a Punjabi woman of course I gave Rupi a try - that's what we brown girls do, we hold each other up and support each other like crazy because who else will?

This was really beautiful and brutal! I totally confess I haven't read poetry in like...forever. I'm kind of terrified of it?! I generally don't "get it" and spent my entire highschool life learning to sprint in order to get away from it. Tbh I'm a great sprinter now so things work out wow go me....

Rupi Kaur does it once again. Her poetry is blooming. Her words hit home as they always do. I mean, there's a reason why there's a surge in poetry books being sold now. She's the reason.
