Whose Face I Knew - Poem by Mary Jesusa Villegas

Whose face I know

Who does she love I do not know.



I was in grade five

I won first place in a poster-making contest

There was my displayed work and the rest

A cute, little girl in a uniform stood beside me

Told me, ‘that was my work' and the giveaway smile

And from seeing, mine became a mess.



I was in fourth year high school

and we have gone to a poster making contest

me and my art teacher walked, and the rest

‘I wish I concentrated on my craft more, but now it's too late.'

I said

as she stood beside me

‘It's okay, ' with a smile that won't give away so easily.



And then I learned that her cute little girl,

was the cute, little girl whom fate allowed me to meet

And I said, "ah, Now I know, "

Whose face I knew

Who did she love,

Now I know.
