Hi guys. I just came up with a poem so i was hoping you could read and post a review about it thanks.Hope you like it.

my soul drifting in the sea of eternity,
hope, crushed
and then,
flooding the darkness of my mind
bringing with it hope
happiness will prevail

Thanks for reading!!!

It's a rather simplistic poem which I like and it portrays great meaning. I suggest using better placement with the words in each line and punctuating so the reader will know what the flow of the poem feels like. Also, if you want to make this an excellent poem, you should check out a thesaurus and replace common words like: "happiness," "joy," "bringing," etc. with words with more meaning or connotation to get the reader interested. That's just some advice though. It's your choice to take it or not. Otherwise, it's a pretty good poem.

Rather plain and expectable, bears no surprises and a dim yet maybe clichéd meaning. It's kinda ordinary considering it's length and it seems more as a filler. There's an acceptable choice of words, nevertheless, like Hantsuki said, they lack meaning.

I suggest making it longer it to an extent where you could fit in more imagery and so to portray a more certain meaning. People could come up with many interpretations to its depth and it's the best not to always have to explain the work's purpose yourself.

A different, clearer structure is always good.
