Ugly is an action, not something physical..were it to become a physical thing !!!!!

wonder what would happen if we wore ugly on our skin
I have seen happiness on a face
pain and suffering on a body
but some how the hate monster hides within
would he come out as welts and boils
or would he then just hide in plain sight
putting on some guise of a pretty face
would you know him if you saw him
wondering if it would come out on his breath
all the poison and hate he as spews
must have rotted his insides  to a putrid mess
but I fear this is just a dream and
the hate monsters inside will continue to hide
