The Prophet by Khalil Gibran

31 Jan

Gibran is one of those poets that I have heard of A LOT. I am embarrassed to say that I knew absolutely nothing about him except that he was originally from Lebanon. I have always thought that people where exaggerating when describing Gibran’s writings. That is probably why I was discouraged to read anything by him.

After years of ignorance, I have finally read The Prophet by Khalil Gibran. Now, I comprehend why people admire this poet.

Even though I am not a fan of reading poetry, I utterly fell in love with “The prophet”. Reading this book was like getting notes on how to live and appreciate life. Gibran dabbled on various daily life issues, such as love, work, joy and sorry, etc. His writing was incredibly unique. To me, it felt like Gibran possessed a magical pen. So whenever Gibran wrote something, it was like the ink was dripping talent and originality.

I find it extremely difficult to summarize this book.  Let me just say this, the book is timeless, and the poet is/was a genius!
