The Woman I Know
… this is Virgie
(For Virgie Paragas-Adonis)

By Apolinario B Villalobos

With boundless desire
to accomplish many things
that others think are impossible,
the woman I know
through impeding hurdles
would just simply breeze through.
Her mother’s strength and loving ways
tempered by her father’s intelligence
and innate golden values –
her overpowering person shows.

A woman of fiery temper
and a heart brimming with affection,
the woman I know
always fights for the righteousness
not much for her own
but for others who, though abused
can’t fight back
as guts and persistence
are what they lack.

She is the woman I know,
who, on some occasion
could be furious or let out tears
in a candid show of emotion.

She oozes with intelligence
that she would unselfishly share
just like the comfort
of her tender motherly care.
Could there be other women
just like this one I know?
