My first proper composition. Please rate and help me expand it.

I'm not sure that I can be that much of a help but I'll try.

First off- you composed a piece! Great! You took your first step to begin with. Hooray.

About the piece itself- it seems like you present an interesting idea at the beginning... and never come back to it.

The only thing I saw repeating was the triplet in the chord.

Maybe you should revisit this one, give the listener a "hey, do you remember this?"

Other than that, you might want to try different accompaniments other than a simple chord (try more special chords, try walking base, try counterpoints[secondary voices]).

About making the piece longer... other than revisiting your first idea you can try and develop the piece regarding to a story or a line.

For example my new piece is built according to this "beautiful" initial sketch:


It's not much but it's way easier to compose a piece when you have a line to follow.

Wish you good luck!

The opening is very hard to discern what's going on rhythmically; it also differs so much from the rest of the piece, that making some sort of reference to it in the later sections always does help.
