Does this text read natural? If not could you please explain in detail why?

All my life long I've sought to find out the mistery of my weakness. Some told it was the prone toward the lazyness, others said I was stupid, others thought I was very intelligent. I wonder why I keep making many mistakes in English, even though I cam already speak in German and French.

All this makes me hate English.

What is there that I still don't understand?

Update:

I mistyped *can*. I'm aware of that.

    Let's start with your question: it should read, "Does this text read NATURALLY?" (Alternatively it could be, "Does this text sound natural?"

    It is probably natural for the Catskill Mountains or thereabouts, but it is not standard English.

    It sounds like a story written by one of the American authors of 150 years ago or more, trying to imitate a local mountain dialect.
