When Things Turn Ugly

There is no term as ugly for me, in terms of people. Every person is beautiful, in his/her own way. Everybody has flaws, that doesn't make them look ugly.
But situations turn ugly. And its unbearable. You've believed all your life, that nothing can be ugly because you don't believe in people being ugly. But you're consciously unaware that things around you can turn ugly. You try to get over it, but everytime it pulls you down and makes you realise that it has always been ugly.
You don't know if you should be silent or speak up about the ugliness. Will it be hurtful? Why should you be the one to have that lump in your throat for the ugliness around? And if you do speak up, the ugliness snaps back at you. Hurting you more.
And you realise, ugliness can make you feel helpless. Your belief that every human being is beautiful, strengthens. Human beings are not ugly. It is the situation that makes them look ugly. But it takes time to get over the ugliness.

And it's rightly been put through these words from a song by Audioslave:

And even when you've paid enough, been pulled apart or been held up

With every single memory of the good or bad faces of luck
Don't lose any sleep tonight
I'm sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do
