What do we want? Rupi Kaur poems! When do we want them? Now, please.
Rupi Kaur is known as one of the OG #instapoets. Everyone knows her name, even people who don’t follow her. But, she is still the same poet who found her squad on Instagram (we are still very much a member of that squad). In the world today, her bold, honest, and powerful messages are as important as ever.
Even though we see her poems are all over the internet, they still pack a punch. Some are like the emotional version of a hammer to the gut. And, sometimes, you just need a bit of that in your life.
We’ve collected 20 of our favorite Rupi Kaur poems. There are a few from both of her books (it was hard to narrow it down – we could have kept going). Each one inspires, empowers, and speaks to us.
Our favorites from Milk and Honey
Our favorites from The Sun and Her Flowers
Those are our top 20! We really could have kept going (let us know if you want us to.) What are some of your favorite Kaur poems? What would your top 10 or 20 list look like? Make sure to share your faves on Instagram with the LI squad.
