|Hi Anna. G'morning. Thanks for the review request.
I thought your poem was really unique, and I love the title, which is fitting for the piece.
The subject line is meant to describe what the poem is about. You may want to change the info there to read something that will draw attention to your piece. Personally, I would choose "Is Your individuality propelled? Read on to find out how I push myself upwards." That would grab more eyes, I think.
The whole poem embodies my philosophy. I still, at 48!, have my first college dictionary from right after HS. Words are our thing!! Aside from my Bible, that and my thesaurus are my favorite books. So, when you say you look up all those words you don't know, I'm thinking 'friend.' Why? Because knowledge seems to run in clusters. If we are willing to do a little side investigating we will #Rise above, not to be haughty or arrogant, but to store those seeds away for when we need them. I do it with every word I don't know.
There is, I have to add, a lot of wordiness. I read it aloud twice, and at the end of nearly every sentence I was gasping for breath. I don't know what that readability scale takes into account, but maybe not breath-factor. 😁
Here are a couple of examples of places where you could condense your words while making the same impact:
A) 1st line:
'Being propelled is encouragement.
B) I would completely omit the line beginning "The anticipation of all this... If we tell our readers that we admire ourselves, they are not likely to admire us.
C) "newfangled version of your newer self" is a wee bit redundant and wordy. I would write: "newfangled version of yourself."
The reason I suggest not being overly flowery in your text is because Editors hate it. I don't know your intentions with your work, but if your aim is to become a published author, please take these tidbits into consideration. It's these tips from other WdC writers that helped me to publish, not a book, but 2 essays and 2 poems.
Overall, I think this is a really important factor to consider for anyone in life, so your audience is everyone. (Don't forget to keep your audience in mind when you use vocab. because words should be age-appropriate. )
Sending you positive Vibes and Light for your path. Blessings on your journey today!
Keep creating masterpieces!
