Here is a piece for seven-part string ensemble about a poem that I wrote. Let me know what you think!

No relation at all to it's coincidentally close timing to the new Star Wars movie? :P

I agree with Monarcheon about the long held notes. I feel that it made the piece lose some of its direction. Also in m.33 when it goes from the violin section to 2nd viola as a transition, to my ear I don't think it works. It just sounds odd and disjointed. I would say around m. 40 onward the piece really finds its groove though and everything fits together nicely.
