This piece has way too much of just playing a straight chord. It makes it sound really 'blocky' and unflowing. It also lacked a clear motif and felt like it progressed onwards kind of randomly.

I'm ok with the composition, but I'd like to hear more punch and probably more low end in it; sounds a bit thin at the moment.

So by more punch; you mean I should probably add more compression right?

Sort of, but punch refers to the attenuation (or expansion) of transient events rather than the whole sound. So by more punch you actually want to add presence to those transients so that big piano hits feel big. On the opposite side if you wanted it to sound smoother (less punch) you would compress those transient events. So you'll want to use an envelope shaper rather than a compressor/expander to get more punch.
