misfits creative

I find myself far
from something

Anywhere In The World

and I ask my soul:
what is solitude?
in absence of a landscape
that could only stay silent.

And it’s something else o'clock
that sits to my right,
hands clasped to compliant caesura
before continuing on
with steps I can’t complete.

Next time, the cold could call
as a new companion
for darkness to take us
Anywhere Else.

He knows you’re one of them
He knows he’s better than me
It doesn’t matter to him
What I say or think/
She knows she’s gonna be the queen
Building her throne on my back
I’m confined to the status quo
She’s the one getting the last laugh/
—  Raenise
How full this world is
of things that don’t belong
why, it’s teeming with misfits
we are everywhere
spilling out of boxes
we’d been so neatly tucked inside
we have begun to climb
up into the limbs of trees
becoming giants ourselves
huge, beautiful, glorious
bigger than the rest of the world can crush
we are rising
we will start wars
we will wage them
we will end them
everything waits for us
to grasp it for ourselves
we cannot be stopped
cannot be silenced
we are mountains
and oceans
and burning stars
we sing rebellion
breathe it
bleed it
live it

Black Nails

Society’s Standards has scribbled over the lives of innocent civilians like a mass murder.

Scratching, Burning, each book. And then rewriting them.

They are infected with mainstream trends, and separate themselves from other people.

Other people like me, with painted nails.

I enjoy watching everything burn to ash, because I’m resistant. A disease like that couldn’t even harm me with a common cold.

Black Rages over my finger nails, marking me with the grand emotion of feeling out of place.

Anyone with Indie Beauty could understand the struggle of a misfit, with a blank book. 

We Can’t let Society tell us what we are, what is beautiful, and most importantly what is right. 

We Must discover ourselves with our own canvas of fresh paint.



Today marks a year of living in Nashville.

Today marks a year since I had my Kickstarter fully funded.

Today I announce that I am releasing Present Tense, my favorite EP I’ve ever been fortunate enough to work on, on 09/09/2016.

Today I am proud, humbled, and excited. Oh what a year can hold!
