Human Growth Mechanisms

I wrote this poem during my first year as a medical student while learning physiology. I was struck by the concept of human growth mechanisms.

Growth is such a universal and fundamental characteristic to living beings, and I wanted to play with both language and form to contrast a scientific explanation of growth to the emotional growth that occurs when we experience pain or suffering.
