You Never Know What Voice Is Going To Speak To You

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    It matters, to show your opinion and your support.

      I know. But for a very long time, I’ve felt as if I didn’t matter, not any part of me, but most especially my thoughts on anything. I’m learning just how wrong I was.

        Your opinion counts. I know how you feel though- for most of my life, mine didn’t. Unless it was agreement with something negative.

          You know what, I don’t ‘like’ this. It’s not right. And while it may be too late to change the past, it isn’t too late to change the future. So, no more hiding and thinking we don’t matter. We do. And we count.
