When Kahlil was eight years old his father was arrested for tax evasion after leading the family into poverty and Kamila decided that the family should relocate to the USA, following in the footsteps of Kahlil's uncle who had moved to America a few years earlier. His father was released from prison a year before the family left but he elected to stay in Lebanon.
The family settled in Boston's Syrian neighbourhood and Kamila worked as a seamstress and peddler, selling fabrics from door to door. Through the Holland Day connection Kahlil became a well-known artist at a young age in Boston but his mother felt that it was all too much too soon and he returned to Lebanon to complete his education. He stayed there for 4 years but during this period his mother, half-brother and sister all developed serious illnesses back in the USA and so Kahlil returned to America to help his family.
When he arrived he discovered that his sister had already died and his mother and half brother would follow too not long after. Kahlil sold the family business and began to concentrate on his art and in had his first exhibition which was a critical success. At the exhibition he met Mary Haskell, a school teacher who would end up financing his burgeoning career. As well as drawing he was also developing his writing abilities and would spend much of his time translating his Arabic writing into English. Mary Haskell convinced him to write in English and also helped him with language, grammar, editing and various other important literary factors that contributed to his growth as a writer.

His first written work was published that same year in an immigrant newspaper. His first book, written in Arabic, came out the following year and was followed by more books and articles. The book was a critical success and although it only sold modestly his reputation began to grow and he began to move in new literary circles. In the book a prophet is making his journey home after living away for many years and on his way to board the ship he stops and discusses many moral and spiritual matters with a group of people. It has never been out of print, being a particular favourite of the s counter-culture scene.
A shoulder injury that he sustained whilst a child, and that progressively got worse over the years, became so painful that he turned to drink to dull the pain and subsequently became an alcoholic. He distracted himself from his various ailments and injuries by writing but it was not long before the excessive drinking got the better of him and he died of cirrhosis of the liver in and, as was his wish, was returned to Lebanon to be buried.
From the acclaimed author of The Prophet comes a unique and moving collection of poems and parables. Twenty-five in all, they bring forth teachings on morality, spirituality and compassion in a way that only Gibran is capable. Although each entry is short, they evoke thoughtful reflection for those aware of his deeper meanings. Sometimes it may seem there is no message to an entry, at least on the surface, but the reader is being challenged to reflect a bit, by a true master, Gibran, before the insights come. The book is short, but what the reader may create and experience as a result of its reading could fill volumes.
