TRAILBLAZER
by Camille Rose Castillo

Allow me the autonomy 
Of innovative spirit 
Don’t undermine potential 
My purpose, don’t inhibit

Don’t hinder my endeavors
Nor interrupt progression
Be mindful of my right
To meaningful expression

Don’t try to nail my wings
Unjustly to the floor
Don’t stifle my ambition
I earnestly implore

Through fiery determination
I’ll pursue my intuition
With acute awareness
I'll inspire new tradition

Though the odds be great
Against what I believe
Through blazing perseverance
The impossible I’ll achieve


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



EXCLUSION
by Camille Rose Castillo
 
When faced with baseless accusation
And tenuous, ill exclusion
Realize your own import
Repulse aloof delusions

Allow your keen perception
To rout all diffidence
When vexed by the absurd
Employ intelligence

Confused condemnation
Though awfully unjust
Duly is retained
By the rash and covetous


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



PROVIDENCE
by Camille Rose Castillo

Though I fatefully tread
Across profane terrain
Where avarice and turpitude
Is prosaic and mundane

I’ve pride in each step
Valor in this plight
Disquiet I reject
By sagacity I’m enshrined


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



SOLEMN SINGULARITY
by Camille Rose Castillo

From a mind preserving flair
Seeps nil dreary thought
Nondescript and commonplace
Surely, it is not

Routinely misconstrued
Designated strange
Alas, seamless intellect
Is rare in this domain

‘Tis a harsh reality
Scarce is sterile sense
Renounced and undermined
Is bared resourcefulness


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



PALTRY SOCIETY
by Camille Rose Castillo

Whilst we claim ourselves
a civilized, caring
and enlightened society,
a mortally wounded dog
lies unattended
on the side of a road,
as her distraught
canine companion
remains helplessly, yet devotedly
by her side,
exhibiting a level
of sensitivity and compassion
that far exceeds
that of those
who regrettably have
ruthless command
over the entire animal kingdom.

Yes, in all our pitiful glory
we dare claim ourselves
superior to these creatures....
how contemptibly mistaken we are.

How painful and disheartening
to powerlessly observe
such callousness and indifference,
and how terribly dispiriting
to acknowledge myself
as one who is
reluctantly, yet unavoidably
part of a legion
that so brazenly owns
such apathy, depravity and disgrace.


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



POLITICAL INCORRECTNESS
by Camille Rose Castillo

Steadily declining
Almost forgotten
Are morals and values
Placed at rock bottom

Gone are the days
Of calling one out
Or admitting to ills
Of society throughout

Political Correctness
That's what it's called
Undeniably to blame
For morality's fall


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



NOSTALGIA
by Camille Rose Castillo
 
Regret, reminiscence
Over a time long past
A force of oppression
Disillusionment cast

A passion profound
A rare, glowing prize
Unforeseen long ago
Its veracity denied

In the twilight of trance
Reality wanes
Allows a semblance
Yet leaves not a trace

On a remote bridge of dreams
My illusions unfold
Piercing the veil
Of longings untold

Mourning the beauty
Of a life unlived
Crossing the channel
To what might have been


~ Camille Rose Castillo Poems ~



OLD MAN WINTER
by Camille Rose Castillo
 
With ferocious blast
You muffle with snow
And cover with frost
With your icy blow

You silence the leaves
With your callous chill
You hunt down my summer
With unmerciful will

You swap vibrant colors
For dull, dreary tones
Replace lively birds
With bitter wind drones

With piercing cold breath
And unmerciful huff
You steal away comfort
With each glacial puff

A sore to my eyes
Most cruel on my bones
You weaken my spirit
With no pity shown

Please, mister Winter
Make yourself distant
As fast as you can
Become non-existent!


~ Poetry by Camille Rose Castillo ~



NON-ERUDITE INTELLECTUAL
by Camille Rose Castillo
 
Academic ill informed
Illogical intellectual
Pardon me for saying
Your views are ineffectual

Your analytical skills seem flawed
Your vision quite blurred
Your arguments incoherent
Your speech slightly slurred

Kindly spare me the drivel
Humanely suppress the noise
Cease from further imposing
Irrational, nonsensical ploys


~ Poetry by Camille Rose Castillo ~



SOCIAL ORGANIZATION AND CRIME
by Camille Rose Castillo

It is only through
Recognizing the quality
And significance of
The concept of human dignity

That society can acknowledge
That crime is undoubtedly
Unnecessary and harmful
If we are to consider sound
And rational societal progression

It is in fact
Not only our responsibility
As humans
But our very nature
To distinguish between
Intrinsic good and intrinsic evil

It is only through
Distinguishing between
The two through
Universal laws of nature
That we can in fact
Work together towards
A common goal
That each and every
Member of society
Can benefit from

It is only through
Acknowledging our capability
To distinguish between
Right and wrong
Without relying on
Wrongful acts committed
For the purpose of enlightenment
That we can begin
To heal ourselves
Of societal moral ills overall

It is only through
This process
That we can attain
Prudent and structural societal progression
