It's good. I like the stylistic details particularly. But it seems like the kind of thing I see a lot of. It's a bit generic.6 stars anyhow.

Nice poem, im pretty much still a child so i understand what you mean, i did rush things and i do miss my past, and your poem riminded me of that so thank you, even if its not much- in my opinion i think this poem deserves a 10 out of 10
