Captivating, inspirational and honest
just a few words to describe Kahlil Gibran
a man who lived a short life,
but in that time bared his soul and expressed words full of love and vigor
narrating stories of all forms that easily captures and moves the reader.
His contribution to the world was paramount,
and to this day still influences and reshapes minds of all ages and all backgrounds
especially mine to which I’m eternally grateful for.
He died relatively young but his soul is evermore,
as are his words.
It was Kahlil’s 136th birthday on 06/01/20.His impact was profound and is one of the few writers I have to pause when reading his work to properly absorb his words and its meaning. Kahlil’s work is more than just prose or poems but of life itself whether it’s joy, pain, sorrow or in between.
