i dive into the well of my body
and end up in another world
everything i need
already exists in me
there’s no need
to look anywhere else
– home

Rupi Kaur presents us with yet another book of Poems by her. She has the words i never thought i needed to read or hear, she has the strengh to move the world, and she isn’t afraid of doing so. She decides over her life and we have so much to learn from her.

This is the second book of poetry i read by Rupi Kaur. The first one was sweet and i loved it. Yet this one felt so much personal. Sure, I believe all her books are personal, but this time i felt extremely touched by her words. I feel like i found a home where i’m understood completely.

It’s not the first time i see Rupi talks about abuse, especially child abuse, so beware of that.

But her words are weapons. She is so powerful in everything she has to say. I don’t exactly know how to describe it, but she understands.

This is absolutely one of my favorite reads of the year.

I give the book 5 stars.

I would recommend it but beware because it talks about some very personal struggles not everyone is ready to confront.
