the hardship and trials

By , SAN ANTONIO, TX
For I am 14 and always in between
The hardship and trials of others
I love my life and yet despise it!
Why am I cursed I ask of thee
Just to beseech me
I pray I hope my day shall come
That I shall never run
For I am 14 and always in between
The hardship and trials of others
The thing I hear should never be heard
For I only get very disturbed
You talk as if I understand
The hardships and trials
Of oh look that girl is POOR
Or look over there isn’t that the girl who was
RAPED BY HER OWN FAMILY MEMBER
YES YES YES I UNDERSTAND
Only to a demand I understand
Your hardship and trials aren’t as bad as mine
For I am 14 and always in between
The hardship and trials of others
My hardship and trials no one cares
Again I am full of despair
The thoughts I have shake me inside
To the point where I always cry
I pledge to try my best for thee
And you promise to be your best for me
For I am 14 and always in between
The hardship and trials of others
DON’T YOU WISH YOU WERE ME 

I like how even your Author's comment was sort of poetic, but this is a very depressing subject and it is very hard to write glowing comments about things like this. Very good writing, and the older and more refined language made you seem cultural and slightly Shakespearian.
