I read this over the weekend and this is my first time reading poetry (this is also my first book for this year). I would like to say that I was not disappointed with this book. You can tell that the author wrote about some life experiences in this book so there will be a lot of thinking and feeling that comes from reading this. I think my favorite poem in this whole book is on page 53 (I’ll let it be a surprise to you until you’ve read this for yourself). I would recommend this to someone who enjoys poetry (the poetry in this book may be for adults only).
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.
