Most have a multitude
They hold on to tales of judgments about body, about beauty, about taking up too much space in the world.
But what if there were another voice, one that told a different tale?
What if there was enough space to hold the stories that fill her

And then my friend says, "Well, I'm that girl I'm just like Madison. I don't look like I would have a story about my body and I almost feel like I don't have a right to have a story, but I do have one.
