Hey there, Alice here to give a review!
The poem is about aging as expressed very clearly, I myself having written a poem lately about the same topic but with my perspective and experience of growing up, I could say it is a very delightful and emotional topic to write on. You get to organize your thoughts and realize the changes in your thinking and personality as you developed from childhood to teenage or young adult. You expressed the idea of sorrow, realization, happiness, and longing well. The only thing I would suggest that the other person said as well is that the theme is collective and non-specific. I get you that sometimes we like to write poetry on a generic topic as it is a safe option and will be relatable for the readers. But as this topic about growing up is very broad, I would have liked to see your take on it and read about the part of aging you liked or hated or find the most memorable.
STRUCTURE AND FORM
Loved your rhyming scheme of AABBAA, the flow was great, which is very hard to follow so well done! The words fitted the theme of an anachronistic topic well.
For though the journey may be long,
And though the road may oft be wrong,
I liked the use of oft in place of often, it goes well with the structure and prose.
There is a beauty in life's course,
A strength, a grace, a healing force."
Everything, in the end, is healed anyway right, that's the course of growing u. You will find beauty in the things you didn't recognize before and hate things you thought were important at some point in life. In the end, it's a journey that everyone takes<3
