I do not know where to start. Listen, as a dark woman, of course, I gave Rupi a chance: that's what we do brown girls, we hug and we support each other like crazy because who else will? However, I think we should also be able to talk when work is not enough. Being critical is just a hard love, so do not be so quick to dismiss my negative response. First, half of this book is a phrase from his first book, and most of his longer pieces feel lazy and ill-thought. . I do not know where to start. Listen, as a dark woman, of course, I gave Rupi a chance: that's what we do brown girls, we hug and we support each other like crazy because who else will? However, I think we should also be able to talk when work is not enough. Being critical is just a hard love, so do not be so quick to dismiss my negative response. First, half of this book is a phrase from his first book, and most of his longer pieces feel lazy and ill-thought. . I found myself jumping / losing interest through most of them. Also, I simply can not ignore the most popular pieces that she has claimed as her own when any avid reader can tell her they are not. Example 1: "You should not see anything in yourself if you find me worth less after having played Meas if your hands on my body magnify you and you do not reduce me to anything" - very familiar rupi kaursounds for my favorite quote from Kaija Sabbah: "If you consider a less pure woman after you have touched Hermaybe you should take a look at your hands." Example 2: (This is from her first book) "She was music, but her ears were cut" - Rupi Kaur "It was like a piano in a country where everyone had their hands cut off." - Angela CarterExample 3: "a man who cries" - rupi kaur "I want more men with flowers that fall from their skin, more water in their eyes, more trembling in their hands, more women in their hearts, more in their body, more softness in his height, more honesty in his voice, more awe, more humility in his eyes. "- Nayyirah WaheedExample 4:" Your voice does what autumn does to the trees you call to say hello and my clothes fall in a way natural "- rupi kaur (According to this, it is simply hilarious, here is who tried to copy)" I want to do with you what spring does with cherry trees ". - Pablo Neruda and "You wonder why I do not answer your calls at 3 am When you say" I miss you ", I start to undress by habit." -Sierra DemulderExample 5: "If you had something more beautiful, the sun would leave its place and I would come for you "- Rupi kaur. He had told the sea what he felt for you, he would have left his shores, his shells, his fish and often. "Nizar Qabbani (many of you have sent a message about the difference between plagiarism and inspiration, and this is my opinion about it: if Ms. Kaur is trying to give women a voice through her work, what she she says she is doing, then she should also acknowledge all those who have "inspired." The debate is not whether she is a good poet or not, but whether she has some integrity ... what she clearly does not have. Color, specifically black women, have been silenced by her.This is the same woman who "wrote" the following: "I am the product of all the ancestors who came together and decided that these stories should be told." "How? By erasing them? By taking their words and signing their name below them? And my favorite, "never exchange honesty for relactability" Congratulations to all, she touched you.) The pieces that talk about some of the most difficult topics seem so shallow that I felt wrong to read it. I would never give this to my daughter. Not to mention the randomly sprinkled poems that speak of her being an immigrant, they all felt so out of place and clumsy by their other pieces. Anyway, I could continue talking about how much your work reflects the work of lesser-known authors, but I think that most readers already know it. I feel disappointed and embarrassed by this author and I would never recommend it to anyone. I can only hope it grows one day and finally finds its voice. ...Plus

I do not know where to start. Listen, as a Punjabi woman, of course, I gave Rupi a chance, that's what we do brown girls, we hug and we support each other like crazy because who else will? However, I think we should also be able to talk when the work just does not work. Being critical is just hard love, so do not dismiss my negativity so quickly. First, half of this book is from a single line of his first book, and most of his longer pieces feel lazy and ill thought out. I do not know where to start.
