I'm not sure how to critic this in an unbiased way, but I'll try my best. I don't think this piece really describes your mood after hard work. I think it's just what you perceive the world is telling you what 'the mood after hard work' is. I tend to stress originality not because of ridiculously repeated common progressions, but rather because I believe music should be like a poem- a personal composition written with the ink of your soul, and if possible, uninfluenced by another's work. I know that's difficult to do since our initial definition of music is really only a compilation of what has entered our ears through our lifetimes, but imagine your're writing a poem in your own words.. your own language. Even if it looks like total chaos on paper.. it's all about the composer's intention. Since you're describing a mood, that's a very personal experience and should be treated in such manor. Maybe right after working you feel completely exhausted (ex. A slow and low-density passage utilizing minor scale characteristics). Perhaps once you think about the paycheck you'll be receiving soon, you suddenly regain energy and joy (ex. An uplifting passage in a major scale). By no means am I telling you how to compose. I'm just showing you my perspective on what music is. Listen to Wallstreet Rag by Scott Joplin while scrolling through the sheet music and you'll see how it's shaped as a sequence of events and emotions. This can of course be applied to any genre of music, but that's the only piece I've seen to actually annotate the purpose of each passage. I could just tell you I love or hate the piece, but that wouldn't mean much since there's always going to be someone with a different opinion. So I figured there's no reason to care of anyone's opinion unless you plan on marketing yourself to them.

Thanks for comment thphaca,
its always difficult to describe your feelings by composing and waiting that the listeners feel the same (maybe its better not to tell the circumstances :-) You can listen to my composition rain or snow and most listeners can follow it, this one is different, I didnt think a lot of it, i just was tired and played it after coming home, its like a snap shot, maybe a kind of improvisation, maybe just releasing stress, I also cannot explain all ideas :D

I understand what you mean. I think that's how we all feel; like we can pour our soul into our composition. The problem in the beginning stages of composition is that we always refer to something we heard before. It takes time to be able to put personality into a composition and when we often seek it, it's no where to be found. Listening to all the music in the world doesn't seem to help ether, it just adds more influence for us to feed off of. I'm not sure how to provoke creativity, just try not to stay on one idea for too long. and have tolerance for new ones. I'm sure many of us didn't like classical music as a child, but here we are, composing it. :)
