You are ugly is about personal worth and freedom. To me, it is about the resilience and strength of the human spirit to cope with people and situations that attempt to demean, control, manipulate, or destroy. But it is also about freedom. Just as the scroll ends, so does the ability to reach the soul with negativity and hate. You are ugly is a declaration of independence, a realization that personal beauty and freedom cannot be destroyed.
