A competition for newbies

I am a noob since I don't know how to simplify and it is taking long for me to make a piece/score so since their are no more competitions, I will host one
Here are the rules and all my scores (Don't mind the duplicate, I will just make another one and delete it)
Rules:
1. Instruments: Piano solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that are allowed this week: Impressionistic and/or Etude
4. Only one piece per person per style
To submit, copy and paste the link so I can view it
Here are all meh scores:

16 bar compositional exercise

https://musescore.com/user/11164031/scores/5412063

Composition exercise by the Polish composer Karol Szymanowski(1882-1937) given to his student.

It goes as follows:
16 bars divided into 4x4 bar segments
Tonic chord at the beginning
At bars 7/8 modulate to dominant(in major) or relative major(in minor)
In bars 9/10 write a sequence
In bars 11/12 write another sequence
In bars 13/14 thematic return should occur
In bar 16 coda
And at the bottom: "best subdominant, dominant and tonic, perfect cadence."

I recommend giving it a try
