CHICAGO– Inspired by poetry greats, Patricia Junious-Hawkins creates a new, classic collection of poetry in her recently released book “Depths of my Heart: What Comes from the Heart Reaches the Hearts of Others” (published by Trafford Publishing).

“Depths of My Heart” is a collection of poetry that emerged from within Hawkins’ heart. “Almost everything that I have ever written was based on how I felt in my heart at one time or another,” explains Hawkins. “My poetry is about people, things, places or situations that occurred in my life or the lives of people I know.” Each poem brings a different emotion with it as each poem ranges certain instances that resonated with her at the time.

“I love writing poetry,” says Hawkins. “It has been my outlet for expressing my feelings. Over the past 16 years, I have built a collection of poems and felt led to share what God has blessed me to do, with other people, in hope that someone will be encouraged, inspired, renewed and motivated.”

“Depths of My Heart” is divided into seven parts which are reflected in the topic heading. The seven topics strung though out the book are: Where my love lies: My Family; The Touch of Special People; It’s all about Jesus; It’s who you are; Life as it is; Hold on, God will; and My Story.

An excerpt from “Depths of my Heart”:


We remember our sisters who are no longer here
In our minds and hearts they are always near
We honor each one of them on this day
For we care for them in a very special way
Memories of them we will always embrace
Even though we can no longer see their face
We appreciate all the things they did
Trying to help our church to get ahead
We miss their presence here on land
But we know that they are in God’s hand
We thank God that they crossed our path
Our love for them will always last
