    I have to say it's probably the first time I've read an acrostic that's one sentence, and I enjoyed it. In that sense, I think this sets your poem apart from others of the same style. I also like your word choice.

    Brilliant acrostic, full of wonderful imagery. Acrostics are harder than people think, especially to write one this good.

    Imagery poems are great in short forms because it lets us see what the author was or is trying to convey inside their own mind. Utopia is such a strong word to use because itself can mean happiness and that is what I believe you were going for here. If the title speaks for a name then this person is portraying their happiness within themselves or even another person that they are friends with. This poem is simple but complex in its meaning but that is what makes it well crafted. after sadness was in your life you found the other side within happiness. what also interested me was the river of ashes, which could be interpreted in a lot of ways as well, as in a house burning to ashes, you spreading a loved ones ashes in a favorite river. But I think what you are going for here is the ashes of what is inside yourself and the ashes of negativity that have burned and bliss has spread, either way this is a well crafted write!
