I'm fine. I just feel like I'm shattered into hundred of little shards of glass and I'm going to hurt everybody who loves me.

I'm caught between
the devil inside
and the angel they want me to be.
They say I'll understand it in good time
but age is just a number in my mind
I don't want to be the little girl they kissed goodnight
They push me between wrong and right
I can't hear my heart
over all their voices
I want to be my own person
but they will never cease their suggestions
but they will never understand
Who I am inside
why will they tell me
what's wrong with me?
but never say there is good in my heart
Why won't anybody tell me what has happened to me?
Why am I so misunderstood?
Why can't they see?
I am not their little girl anymore
I'm not what they want me to be
I'm caught between the devil inside
And the angel they want me to be.

I just feel like I am never enough or I'm not what they want me to be.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

It is quite relatable, very very well written, and unabelievably honest. It shows your readers a part of your soul. Great job.

Exercise to stimulate, not to annihilate. The world wasn't formed in a day, and neither were we. Set small goals and build upon them.

This is amazing!  I am not joking at all, very very very amazing.  It is relatable and all, good piece.
